Visconsin's Military Establishment:
    Its Organization and Operation
  Editors' Note: Because we are currently celebrating the Civil
War Centennial, the main article of this Blue Book is devoted to
Wisconsin's military effort and the agencies and functions of the
state related specifically to the defense effort. The interest in the
Civil War at this time suggested that a comprehensive article on
"Wisconsin and the Civil War" by Professor Frank L. Klement
of Marquette University be set out first. This is followed by
briefer resumes of Wisconsin's participation in World Wars I and
II and by sections devoted to the Adjutant General, the National
Guard, the Veterans' Home at King, Veterans' Benefits Provided
by Wisconsin, Civil Defense, and Wisconsin's Military Manpower,
prepared by the Legislative Reference Library.
     VICKSBURG
This monument to the Wis-
consin soldiers who fought
in the siege of Vicksburg was
dedicated May 22, 1911. It
is 122 feet, 6 inches high,
capped by a bronze statue of
Old Abe, 6 feet high.
