MPA Launches Soldiers Home Store
The Milwaukee Preservation Alliance (MPA) is now offering two Soldiers Home items through their new online store.
The first is the "Milwaukee’s Soldiers Home" book (2013, Arcadia Books, Images of America series), a photographic history researched and written by local historian Patricia A. Lynch. The book’s 126 pages are full of stories and historic photographs giving you a glimpse into the Home’s early history and growth.
MPA is also offering a beautiful Soldiers Home Badge. It is a replica of a "suitable badge to be firmly attached to the uniform, and at all times worn, by each beneficiary of the Asylum" (now referred to as the Milwaukee Soldiers Home) from 1867. Get yours today!
