The Wisconsin Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission

The 150th Commission was organized to coordinate the efforts by Wisconsin’s museums, libraries, schools and universities, historical societies, veterans’ organizations, and citizens to commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War.

To that end, the Commission will:

  • Honor the legacy, service, and sacrifice of Wisconsin’s citizen-soldiers;
  • Celebrate the contributions of the people left at home, who raised money and provided food, clothing, and other goods to support the war effort;
  • Reach out to multiple audiences by publicizing, coordinating, and sponsoring local and statewide commemorations, exhibits, symposia, and educational programming.

    During this Winter season, perhaps you would like to consider a donation to the Wisconsin Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission.
    You can make the check payable to the Commission and mail it to:
    Wisconsin Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission
    PO Box 11391
    Milwaukee, WI 53211-3091
