THE WAR IN GIANT CITY

Southern Illinois is surrounded by history, much of that history dates back to the Civil War.

Reminders of the war can be found etched in the rocks at Giant City State Park, which was dedicated in 1927 and has 4,000 acres of land in the Shawnee National Forest.

Before becoming a state park, many cliffs and canyons were used as havens by both Confederate and Union soldiers, according to the park website.
