The Battle of Wisconsin Heights, 1832: Thunder on the Wisconsin by Patrick Jung author visit and battleground tour - Saturday, September 15
Meet at Wisconsin Heights Middle School Step Room at 1:00 p.m. for a short presentation by author Patrick Jung. At 1:30 p.m., we'll board the buses to the DNR Black Hawk Unit where Black Hawk and his warriors held back the militia volunteers long enough to allow his people to escape across the Wisconsin River. Patrick will show participants where the militia took up their positions as well as where the warriors, under Black Hawk, fought. Maps will be provided for everyone and as we walk the trails, he will point out where specific events happened and when. The tour will last about 2 hours. Buses will return to WHMS by 4:30 p.m.
There will be two buses limited to a total of 104 passengers. The lot at the Black Hawk Unit is not large enough for individuals to take their own vehicles. The trails that lead away from the parking/drop off area at the battleground are very hilly and unpaved. Participants must be able to walk about a half mile or so on this rugged terrain. Anyone who feels they might not be able to do so should not go, but are welcome to attend the short presentation at the middle school. Participants should be prepared for the weather with appropriate clothing, footwear and water.
Participants wishing to attend the battleground tour must register for a spot on the bus by contacting either the Mazomanie Free Library (795-2104) or the Black Earth Public Library (767-4905) until all spots are filled or by Friday, September 14, whichever comes first.
Funding for this special program is made possible by a grant from Beyond the Page.

Mazomanie Library Brick Returns -
If you purchased a brick to help support the Depot/Library, you can claim your brick by requesting it from the library by calling 608-709-6927 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of the bricks have deteriorated over the years. A downtown beautification project by the Village called for the removal of the bricks. The Friends of the Library are discussing how brick purchasers will be recognized going forward. All requests for brick returns must be made by October 21, 2018.
