Warriors, Saints and Scoundrels - Book


Warriors, Saints and Scoundrels includes brief portraits of real people whose lives shaped, influenced and defined the state of Wisconsin. Authors Michael Edmonds and Samantha Snyder plumbed the depths of the Wisconsin Historical Society's collections to research and compose lively portraits of eighty of these notable individuals: mayors, ministers, mystics, murderers, and everything in between. You'll learn about a governor who saw ghosts, an incorrigible horse thief, a husband and wife who each stood over seven feet tall, an American Indian chief who defied forced removal, and the first woman to practice law before the Supreme Court. Each story is followed by recommended sources for readers' continued exploration.
