They have memorials all the time at Andersonville. They also do reenactments there. Andersonville gets a lot of tourism. The Confederate Soldiers buried here don't get much visitors. I'll bet most people in Chicago never knew of Camp Douglas or the Dead Confederate Soldiers.

Robert Topolski was a member of the Cornell Dukes. His nickname was Tilt. I worked with his Mom at the Lion Match Company back in the 60's. Two of my friends married Tilt's two sisters Beverly & Shirley. I stood up at Shirley's Wedding along side my friend Steve & Tilts brother Jerry. Jerry was killed a few years later in a bar on 48th st. He was stabbed to death over a pool game.

Vitaks on 48th s Ashland during the 50's & 60's had closed in booths inside there where you could listen to your 45 or album before you purchased it. It was a cool place to meet girls.
