Held each fall at the beautiful Forest Hill Cemetery in Madison, this award-winning living history program illuminates the lives of many prominent and lesser known-figures in Wisconsin history. Tours will focus on the contributions of Wisconsin’s soldiers and citizens during the Civil War. Local actors and actresses don period dress, giving viewers a first-person encounter through scripted vignettes.
