MADISON (WKOW) — Madisonians helped mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by holding a number of events.
The war affected millions of people, including several soldiers, nurses, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who came from Wisconsin.
The events have something for everyone, as they honor those who sacrificed and were impacted by the war.
There’s art, film screenings, live theater and musical performances.
The centerpiece of the events is a live “Rock and Roll History Show” at the Barrymore Theatre called, “The Greatest War: World War One, Wisconsin and Why It Still Matters.”
“Wisconsin is very much a state known for it’s wide range of politics. It sometimes very conservative and sometimes very liberal at the same time and that was true back then as well,” said Ken Fitzsimmons, the director of the show.
The performance will be Sunday at 7 p.m.
