History Sandwiched In: Stories from the Capitol – A Century of People and Politics
Tue October 3 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm3$
Since it was completed a hundred years ago, the current Wisconsin Capitol has sheltered everyone under its generous dome — Yankee and German, Norwegian and Ho-Chunk, women and men, Republican and Democrat, black and white, gay and straight, progressives and conservatives, protesters and police. But it also hosted stinking sturgeon, striking workers, and a monkey intended to give testimony. Author Michael Edmonds will share these and other true tales about our Capitol’s history from his new book, “The Wisconsin Capitol: Stories of a Monument and Its People.”
Edmonds is Director of Programs and Outreach at the Wisconsin Historical Society, curator of the centennial exhibit in the Capitol Rotunda, and author or editor of several books and articles on the state’s history.
