The video’s description reads, “The Wisconsin Veterans Museum hosted a conversation with Jeff Kannel, author of Make Way for Liberty: Wisconsin African Americans in the Civil War. Mr. Kannel described how he researched the topic and what life was like for many of the veterans after the war. The Wisconsin Veterans Museum provided this video.”
