Amy Rosebrough visited Madison, Wisconsin’s, Native American Effigy Mounds and talked about what they reveal about the early cultures that lived in the area thousands of years ago. She visited two of the mounds located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus and explained the significance of their shapes, what these mounds meant to the people who built them, and the importance of maintaining these structures. According to Ms. Rosebrough, University of Wisconsin-Madison has more Effigy Mounds on its campus than any other university in the world.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Madison, Wisconsin, from September 19-23 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Charter cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
