WILL-TV and the museum are sponsoring the event, and invite the public to join the discussion and tour the museum exhibit about the Civil War in Champaign County.

Among the other panelists will be Dr. John Schmale, a retired physician and Civil War buff who has worked to save Illinois Civil War flag collection, and Robert Sampson, an adjunct history faculty member at Millikin University in Decatur.
Burns "The Civil War" originally was broadcast in 1990 and quickly became the highest-rated series in PBS history. A re-mastered version was shown on PBS and WILL-TV last month.
