Kathy Kean, a retired Wisconsin High School U.S. History teacher took American History TV on a tour of historic buildings and neighborhoods in Milwaukee. The first, the Milwaukee Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, was completed in 1899, and has recently been restored. The other, the Milwaukee National Soldiers Home, is one of three authorized by Abraham Lincoln in March of 1865, and is still an active Veterans Affairs Center. Ms. Kean was named the Gilder Lehrman National History Teacher of the Year in 2004 and has organized history & architecture tours for over thirty years. Working with the non-profit preservation & educational organization, Historic Milwaukee, Inc., Kathy Kean believes that history can be taught by examining changing architectural styles and public spaces. close
