The public is invited to a 1800s party and book premiere on the Edwards Place grounds as the Springfield Art Association commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The ice cream social features the Springfield International Folk Dancers, free ice cream, children’s activities and re-enactors. The SAA also debuts its newly published Eating with the Edwards Family cookbook and Edwards Place, both funded by a Illinois Association of Museums grant. The gathering is free though a $2 per person or $5 per family donation is sought. For more on the Springfield Art Association visit www.springfieldart.org.
