The Illinois History Symposium is just a month away, and focuses on two monumental events in the country and the state, Women's Suffrage, and World War I. Early registration is coming to a close, and for those who would want to get a discounted price on attending the symposium should move fast.
Gwen Podeschi, from the Illinois State Historical Society said on the Friday evening of the event there will be a reception at Camp Lincoln with a presentation focusing on the 8th Illinois Regiment.
Podeschi said on Saturday they will have their annual awards banquet giving out scholarships and other awards for things such as books, programs, and high school student projects.
Podeschi appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
