“The Battle of Antietam, fought near Sharpsburg, Maryland, on September 17, 1862, marked the single bloodiest day in American history. By nightfall, witnesses reported that the landscape appeared to have turned red. Total casualties numbered more than 25,000, of whom almost 5,000 were killed. Wisconsin’s citizen-soldiers played an important role in the day’s terrible events.” (This information was published next to the exhibit.)

Summer can be recreational and educational as MATC Times Photographer Erik Martinez discovered. He took a trip to Madison and visited the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, which has an emphasis on Wisconsin Veterans  from the Civil War on. Admission is free.

Germany’s Last Gasp: The Battle of the Bulge, December 1944 exhibit at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum in Madison. By January 16, 1945, the U.S. regained most of the bulge. The Allied conquest of Nazi Germany followed four months later.
