Civil War Museum
Civil War Museum’s Media Club: The Enduring Civil War by Gary W. Gallagher
Wednesday, November 8 | 6:30pm – 8:00pm | Register Here
We will meet at the Civil War Museum
In the seventy-three succinct essays gathered in The Enduring Civil War, celebrated historian Gary W. Gallagher highlights the complexity and richness of the war, from its origins to its memory, as topics for study, contemplation, and dispute. He places a contemporary understanding of the Civil War, both academic and general, in conversation with testimony from those in the Union and Confederacy who experienced and described it investigating how mid-nineteenth-century perceptions align with, or deviate from, current ideas regarding the origins, conduct, and aftermath of the war.
Attendees are encouraged to read the book before the meeting and are invited to discuss the topics it covers with other attendees.
Walking Tour of the Grounds of the Milwaukee Soldier’s Home

Participants must provide their own transportation to the site.
The Civil War Museum, in collaboration with volunteers from the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance, is excited to offer a walking tour of the buildings and grounds of the newly rehabbed Milwaukee Soldiers Home. Highlights of the tour include the interior of Old Main and the building’s history exhibit as well as exterior stops at the Home’s historic Theater, Church, Library, and Cemetery. Our guides will also concentrate on the personal stories of the Civil War veterans who made the Soldier’s Home their home after the war.
The group will meet at the grounds at 10am to begin the walking tour. Parking is available.
A portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance.
