The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest hosts its award-winning tour of Forest Home Cemetery. The theme of this 23rd annual tour is The Civil War at 150. Costumed interpreters portray men and women who bring America's bloodiest conflict to life with stories and demonstrations -- from mourning on the home front to the daily life of soldiers in the field. Tours leave every ten minutes, the last leaves at 2 p.m. Rain date is Sunday, Oct. 26. This is a two-hour walking tour so dress appropriately.
