Trevor Steinbach didn’t lose his passion for history after completing his major in the subject and speech communications in 1975.

He has participated in Civil War reenactments as a medic the past 15 years, doing it so well he is nationally recognized. Steinbach is president of the 17th Corps Field Hospital and is on the board of directors of the Society of Civil War Surgeons. He is also president of Tri-State Historical Presentations, which celebrates this year the 150th anniversary of General Ulysses Grant’s return to Galena.

Steinbach’s wife, Cathy (Agnew) ’75, majored in music and plays antique flutes at the reenactments.
