Wisconsin In The Civil War

Wisconsin In The Civil War Wisconsin In The Civil War at the WHS. "...The Civil War (1861-1865) was one of the bloodiest and most tragic, with over 600,000 soldiers killed. During its four long years, more than 90,000 Wisconsin soldiers fought for the Union cause.
To mark its sesquicentennial (150th anniversary), we created 'Wisconsin in the Civil War,' a digital collection containing more than 16,000 original documents. The collection provides ready access to dozens of diaries, regimental histories and book-length memoirs, thousands of soldiers letters, hundreds of newspaper articles, and more than 1,000 photographs, maps and other images.
The collection goes beyond basic facts about Wisconsin military units. It offers personal, in-depth, and moving portraits of Wisconsin soldiers in war."
