Historian Thomas Martin Sobottke relates the role of Wisconsin soldiers at Gettysburg.
This week marks the 150th anniversary of one of the Civil War's most famous battles. The Battle of Gettysburg was also the war's deadliest, and Wisconsin soldiers played a key role over its three days.
The Virginia-based Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund has filed an appeal, on behalf of a Wisconsin dairy farmer. In May, a state court convicted Vernon Hershberger of violating a hold the state had put on his raw milk products, a seal, indicating they should not be sold publicly.
However, the jury found him not guilty of producing milk, operating a dairy plant and selling retail food without licenses.
On the misdemeanor conviction, the judge fined Hershberger $1,000.
