The Wisconsin Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission
Have you ever developed an inflammation issue before? If you so and you went to your doctor to be prescribed with the right treatment drug, it is likely that you have been prescribed with prednisone tablets. Prednisone tablets are used for treating inflammatory conditions. Inflammatory issues can provide the body with either discomfort or pain and so treating them can be very important to relieve the undesirable symptom or condition experienced because of them. Prednisone tablets can help suppress inflammation because its mechanism of action has been particularly designed for this kind of treatment. Doctors give prednisone tablets for those who have inflammation conditions.
There are many types of inflammation issues and many of these are a result of an underlying condition. Asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and allergies are just some of the inflammation conditions that you can treat using prednisone tablets. Read more…
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sexual disorder found in men that prevents them from achieving penile erection. For a sexual intercourse to be successful, a man needs a strong erection in order for him to penetrate the vaginal opening of the female. If a man cannot produce a strong erection, the vaginal opening will prevent him penetrating the female. This is why for those who have developed erectile dysfunction, they have it very difficult, especially if they are still sexually active, because they can no longer use their manhood for sex. Fortunately, we now live in a time where very effective remedies for male impotence are available. Read more…
“The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.” -- Abraham Lincoln, December 1, 1862
The nation was swept by a war of unexpected magnitude between 1861 and 1865. Government documents call it The War of the Rebellion, but President Abraham Lincoln correctly said it was a “People’s War,” and saw it as a “fiery trial of the nation’s character and very existence.
It was not just a war between North and South. Such a description would overlook the significant role and contributions of Wisconsin and the newly developed Upper Middle West in preserving the Union. Attaining statehood in 1848, Wisconsin responded quickly to the distant war not only to defend the flag but to win recognition as a full partner in the Union.
The 150th Commission was organized by The Wisconsin Veterans Museum, under the direction of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs, to honor the legacy, service and sacrifice of Wisconsin’s citizen-soldiers as well as the people left at home who raised money and provided food, animals, clothing, and other goods to support the war effort. .
The Commission will bring together Wisconsin’s museums, educational facilities, libraries, historical societies, and veterans’ organizations to develop educational programming, encourage exploration of Wisconsin’s role in the war, make resources available to the public, and preserve Civil War memorabilia.
The events of 1861 to 1865 seem distant in today’s Wisconsin. Yet we play in parks with old monuments and memorials and drive down streets named for the war heroes of those days. The battlefields are far away, but it is important to remember that the soldiers of Gettysburg and Vicksburg and Shiloh—and dozens of other places—lie in our own cemeteries and churchyards.
This website will be a source of continuing information and will include a schedule of events as well as images, historical information, and links to participating institutions, historical organizations and sites. We hope that Wisconsin’s observation of the sesquicentennial will be remembered not for itself but for the increased understanding of the Civil War which the commission will attempt to create.
