Many consider this Civil War book to be the standard treatment of Wisconsin’s involvement in the war. Marquette University historian Frank L. Klement (1905-1994) originally published this in 1962 as a Blue Book article. It is a vivid chronological narrative of Wisconsin’s role in the pivotal event in American history. In this volume, Klement greatly expanded his 1962 booklet, adding a wealth of new material. He covers each of Wisconsin’s 53 infantry regiments and Wisconsin’s black soldiers. What’s more Klement covers political and constitutional issues, soldiers voting, and women and the war. Overall, it is an essential history for those interested in learning about Wisconsin’s involvement in the Civil War.
