The Wisconsin Veterans Memorials Catalog documents over 680 memorials dedicated to Wisconsin veterans. These memorials are located throughout the State of Wisconsin, the United States, and overseas. The Wisconsin Veterans Museum Research Center maintains this information and is dedicated to locating new memorials and other designated honors to Wisconsin veterans.
The catalog documents the history, physical condition, and location of each memorial. New memorials and honors are dedicated every year. If you know of other memorials that should be included in this catalog, you may submit the information online.
From 1990-1996 staff of the Wisconsin Veterans Museum collected the submitted information and set up a database by county on each memorial. The information for each memorial includes location, condition, the specific veterans or war to which the memorial is dedicated, and who or what entity is responsible for the funding and maintenance of the memorial. Photographs, dedication documentation, or any further information pertinent to the memorial was also attached. As a result, this catalog of memorials exists with supportive photographic and historical documentation.
While the online information says that information is being collected from throughout the United States and elsewhere, when I used the site, I found mostly Wisconsin memorials listed.
