Wisconsin XI

Due west of Milwaukee, about 27 miles, is the city of Delafield, Wisconsin. What I found there was quite remarkable.

The city has built a River Walk that is the Wisconsin Veterans Memorial. As you walk along the site you come upon many placards telling the history of a particular war. The 10 sites begin with the American Revolution and continue through the Global War On terror.

Some have pavers with dedicated names upon them and others have flags or other tributes.

The walk parallels the Bark River and to follow the sites in chronological order you should begin at the St. John's Park entrance where there is a small parking area.

There are a number of these personal pavers at this site.

Next time, we will travel, once again, to Wyoming, so join me, as usual,at 9:00am on the 14th of April.

To see other memorials from Wisconsin, or any other state, click the state name on the left side of this page.
