Chicago DuSable Museum

The DuSable Museum of African-American History (740 East 56th Place,
Chicago IL) is a great option if you are looking for something to do in Chicago.

The museum’s mission is to collect and display artifacts and objects that promote the understanding and appreciation of African Americans.

Should you choose to visit the Museum this weekend, you are in for a special showcase. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the DuSable Museum presents “A Sight Unlike Any Other: The Civil War and the Colored Soldier” this Sunday, June 23, 2013 from 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM

The day-long family event is highlighted by two battle re-enactments celebrating the African American Soldiers who fought for the freedom of their families and themselves. The day includes a performance based upon speeches by Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, museum tours, horse rides for children, and even a Civil War dress up booth.

A screening of “Glory” will also take place.
