Beyond Wisconsin

Description

While the protests of the Wisconsin uprising were mainly in Madison surrounding the Capitol Building they had support from locations across the country.  There were those who traveled to Madison to protest, protests in other locations as well as food purchased to feed those at the Wisconsin Capitol Building.  The Wisconsin Uprising was not an isolated event.  The issues being discussed, the massive crowds, the major news coverage and the duration of the protests created a larger event which touched individuals beyond Wisconsin.
