WWI Special Event - Richard Pifer of UW-Milwaukee

The 32nd Division Over There
In a fast-paced commentary, Dr. Richard Pifer will introduce Wisconsin’s famed 32nd Division. Through the letters and diaries of average soldiers, Dr. Pifer will tell the story of the greatest sacrifice Wisconsin made in the name of the war effort – the commitment of sons, brothers, fathers, neighbors and friends to the meat grinder of trench warfare. These citizen soldiers hammered their way through German resistance to play a major role in ending the war. The 100th anniversary of World War I calls to us across time to remember them all.
