Jim Schaff gave a tour of the Wisconsin State Capitol and talked about why Madison was selected as the capital. He spoke about the architecture, which was designed by George Post in the early 1900s, and visited rooms that represent all three branches of Wisconsin’s government.

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. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
