Hello Public Schools, Private Schools, and Homeschoolers,

My name is Todd DeDecker, administrator of the Bishop Hill Heritage Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the Bishop Hill Colony.  During the first weekend of May 2023, we are hosting a Civil War Days festival.  Below is the schedule for our Bishop Hill Civil War Day for Schools on Friday May 5, 2023.  This is a free, unique field trip hands-on experience that is a one-time only program.  If you have questions or are interested in signing up, please call me at 309 927-3899 or email me at bhha@mymctc.net .  The morning session is full but we still have openings in the afternoon session.  You must have reservations to attend; walk-ins will not be accepted.


Best regards,


Todd DeDecker

BHHA Administrator
