Targeted sculptures linked to Wisconsin, Civil War history

Targeted sculptures linked to Wisconsin, Civil War historyProtesters have defaced and torn down statues of historic figures during recent demonstrations against racial injustice in cities across the nation. Most of those pieces have explicit ties to colonialism, slavery and the Confederacy, including imagery of Christopher Columbus and former U.S. presidents who owned slaves. In Madison, Wisconsin, protesters tore down two sculptures with no obvious links to that history: one depicting an abolitionist Union military official and another of a female form representing the state motto “Forward.”
