Wisconsin XII





My last stop in Wisconsin before returning to Milwaukee was Madison. You may recall that the Capitol was one of the major "hotbeds" of anti war activity at the time. I wondered what I might find here.

As I talked to a number of local people, I discovered that the weekend before my arrival, VVA had set up thousands of headstones in the city park to commemorate Memorial Day. I was sorry to have missed it, I think those pics might have been particularly haunting!

I did find this veterans park in patriot themed development. All the street names were something right out of our history, as seen on the park sign.

You can find more information about it here;
