Nearly 160 years ago, the Emancipation Proclamation ended slavery in the Civil War South. Did you ever wonder how that event affected Wisconsin?
Join the Wisconsin Veterans Museum for their annual Talking Spirits XXIV: Forest Hill Cemetery Tours to see, hear, and experience how this document changed the lives of future Madisonians and Wisconsinites. These tours will take place during the week of October 3-9, 2022 at Forest Hill Cemetery. Candlelit tours will be held on October 8th and daytime tours will be held on October 9th.
