CHALLENGE

There are many monuments  in the city of Milwaukee that do not appear in the listing above.  Students in your classes come from all over the city and may very well be aware of monuments they pass every day.  By using the link below and a phone camera your students can add their monuments to the listing and do a bit of painless historical research at the same time.  Within one year we could have all the monuments in Milwaukee listed and available as a teaching / learning resource.  My request is that if a student makes a listing they also drop me an email on the contact form so I can update my information.
