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.
