Wisconsin Veterans Museum Part One: The US Civil War

Visitors to Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, would do well to visit the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. It is a small, but extremely well designed museum, and admission is free. Today I am sharing a few swords and other items from their exhibit on the Civil War. Tomorrow we will see items from their exhibit on the Spanish-American War.
