Next Wednesday: “Union Veterans at Forest Home Cemetery” Lecture

Join MCHS for the  special guest lecture “Eternal Bivouac: Union Veterans at Forest Home Cemetery” at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, March 20th!

Specializing in identifying graves of Civil War veterans, Margaret Berres and Tom Ludka will present their most recent project, the identification of graves at Milwaukee’s Forest Home Cemetery. They will share some background on the project, the process involved, and some of the stories of the veterans they have uncovered.

It’s bound to be an interesting lecture and a good time! As always, refreshments and snacks will be provided!
