On March 29, 1973, the last U.S. combat troops were withdrawn from Vietnam. Wisconsin was there in more ways than one. Join the Wisconsin Veterans Museum for their annual Talking Spirits: Forest Hill Cemetery Tours, now celebrating its 25th year, to see, hear, and experience how the Vietnam War changed the lives of thousands of Wisconsinites for decades to come. These tours feature four vignettes along the route, as historical actors portray veterans’ experiences in Vietnam, as well as the policymakers who brought the war to conclusion, and the important mission of bringing our MIA’s home.

Tours will be held for school groups on October 2-8. Candlelit public tours are October 7 and daytime tours are October 8. Admission is $15 per person. Wisconsin Veteran Museum members receive free admission. All tours are at Forest Hill Cemetery in Madison. This event is made possible in part by a grant from Dane Arts.
