This memorial is dedicated to the 45,000 international volunteers who fought in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939. Among them were 2,800 United States veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, many of whom came from Wisconsin. Their memorable struggle against the spread of fascism can be counted as a uniquely historic moment in the fight for peace and democracy.

"You are history. You are legend. You are the heroic example of democracy's solidarity and universality.
Dolores Ibarruri (La Pasionaria) Deputy to the Spanish Parliament

?Viva La Brigada Lincoln!

1936 ? 1938
