[April 10, 2007]  SPRINGFIELD -- On Saturday, The Company Singers, a Civil War era singing group, will perform in the plaza of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum. Performances are scheduled for 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.

The Company Singers is made up of members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War from Huntington, Ind. Singing well-known songs of the Civil War such as "Battle Cry of Freedom" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic," the group also performs some little-known songs of the time period, such as "The Glendy Burke," "Springfield Fair" and "The Mermaid." The Company Singers group was formed five years ago and has since performed at Civil War re-enactments around the country.

Paid admission into the presidential museum is required.
