  8:30AM 5:00PM Screen-Free Week   The Illinois State Museum will join thousands of schools, libraries, and community groups nationwide in a coordinated effort to encourage millions of Americans to turn off televisions, computers, and video games for seven days and turn on the world around them. Screen-Free Week is a chance for children to read, play, think, create, be more physically active, and to spend more time with friends and family. From Monday, April 29 through Sunday, May 5, the Museum will turn off all multimedia screens in its exhibitions. For the last few years, the Museum has recognized the importance of Screen Free Week as a respite from the screen media that dominate the lives of so many people. “In the past, we have encouraged families to visit the Museum during this week, but this year we decided to lead by example and turn off our screens as well,” said Elizabeth Bazan, Mary Ann MacLean Educator. Museum staff hope that by turning off the screens, visitors will be encouraged to look more closely at the rich array of objects and other educational materials on display. Screen Free Week On average, preschool children spend over four and a half hours a day consuming screen media, while older children spend over seven hours a day including multitasking. Excessive screen time is linked to a number of problems for children, including childhood obesity, poor school performance, and problems with attention span. Screen-Free Week (formerly TV-Turnoff) is coordinated by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, a national advocacy organization devoted to reducing the impact of commercialism on children. Since the Week’s founding in 1994, it has been celebrated by millions of children and their families worldwide. For more information, visit www.screenfree.org. The Illinois State Museum is an institution dedicated to inspiring people of all ages to discover and care about Illinois’ natural and cultural resources and artistic heritage. The Museum’s extensive collections and research activities provide the foundation for exhibitions and public programs that tell the story of the land, life, people, and art of Illinois. The Illinois State Museum is located at 502 S. Spring Street (the corner of Spring and Edwards Streets) in Springfield, and is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

  7:00PM 9:00PM Battle of Chancellorsville   When Union forces clashed with a much smaller Confederate army in the Battle of Chancellorsville, Robert E. Lee seized victory with what many consider to be his strategic masterpiece. But Lee also paid a terrible price, as a presentation on May 2 at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will explain. Dr. Mark DePue, historian and director of the library’s Oral History Program, will discuss the battle in a PowerPoint presentation, using quotes from Civil War veterans, maps, photographs and illustrations. The free event, part of Illinois’ observance of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, takes place in the museum’s Union Theater beginning at 7 p.m. Reservations can be made by visiting www.presidentlincoln.illinois.gov and clicking on “Special event tickets and reservations. Union commander Joseph Hooker rebuilt a demoralized Army of the Potomac and then took them across the Rappahannock River in pursuit of Lee in April 1863. He outnumbered Lee’s forces 2-1. But the Confederate commander made bold moves over several days of fighting in early May. Notably, he kept Hooker occupied with skirmishes and feigned attacks while Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson took about 28,000 troops around to the Union’s right flank and launched a devastating surprise attack. In the end, Lee won – but 22 percent of his soldiers were dead, wounded or missing. And Jackson, his most able lieutenant, was mortally wounded by his own troops. Chancellorsville proved to be one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War, with more than 30,000 casualties between the two armies. The Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is offering a series of free presentations on major Civil War battles. Still to come in 2013 are Vicksburg, Gettysburg and the Chickamauga and Chattanooga campaign. The Wilderness and Spotsylvania, Kennesaw Mountain and Atlanta and the siege of Petersburg occur in 2014. Then the pursuit to Appomattox and Lee’s surrender wrap up the series in 2015.
