Jacksonville, IL: Grierson Days Reenactment

The annual “Grierson Days” reenactment will be held June 21-22, in Community Park in Jacksonville, Illinois. “Grierson Days” commemorates the 1863 cavalry raid through Mississippi of Union Col. Benjamin Grierson, a Jacksonville resident.

Battle reenactments are scheduled for 3:00 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. A Saturday evening dance will again be held at the Community Center in the park, since the Nichols Park Pavilion is still not available due to construction. The dance will feature Miss Deborah Hyland as dancemistress. A period fashion show will be held Saturday at noon in conjunction with a ladies’ tea.
