In Illinois, Lakewood Forest Preserves District President Angelo Kyle attempted to cancel this year’s 27th annual Civil War re-enactment, which is scheduled for July. He rescinded the cancellation after other Lake County commissioners complained, and the organizer noted that they already have a contract.
