The 8th Illinois Cavalry Regiment will ride again, but with a slight uniform adjustment.
The Civil War reenactors are gathering Saturday at Camp Kane in St. Charles for their first event since the COVID-19 pandemic began. While the goal is historical accuracy with their encampment, safety dictates the use of proper masks for everyone involved.
That includes the public, which is welcome to see what Civil War camps actually looked like. Up to 50 socially distanced people at a time are allowed in the park for the event, which will take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
