Civil War group needs cannon

$750 of $11,500 goal

Raised by 19 people in 10 months
We are the Chicago Light Artillery. Battery A and for over fifty years we have been encouraging remembrance of the Civil War and the sacrifices made by soldiers of that era and also those who served in subsequent wars. We do this by engaging in reenactments, marching in parades, participating in memorial services for our veterans and sponsoring free educational events.

For these events, we were fortunate to have the use of an authentic 170 year old cannon. We are now being asked to return the cannon since the group that owns it has a new home for it.

We are making a request for funds to replace the original cannon with a replica. This will enable us to return to the field so we can continue our job of bringing history alive.

2018 is a new year and gives us new resolve to acquire a cannon which will allow us to continue our mission to educate others about the importance of remembering the Civil War. Thanks to all who have contributed in 2017.

Thank you everyone for helping us get off to a great start. We hope to have a cannon by next summer so we can continue to salute America and all the veterans past and present who keep our country unified and strong.
