The Lee County Historical Society decided to offer something new, this year, as part of the annual Civil War Re-Enactment in Keokuk.
President Sue Olson says the organization also wanted to kick off the weekend festivities, thus the Cessation Celebration.
Jason Parrott’s guests are Keokuk Tourism Director Kirk Brandenberger and Wes Pohorsky, who is a longtime member of the Keokuk Tourism Board.
A Keokuk tradition is celebrating a major milestone this month as the 25th annual Civil War Reenactment will run from Friday, April 27th through Sunday, April 29th.
“It will probably hit after it’s over with,” says Brandenberger about the thought of the 25th anniversary. “Right now, we are just working real hard towards putting on a great event for the area.”
