Discover the Silent City Cemetery Tours

  • Oak Grove Cemetery 1407 La Crosse St La Crosse, WI, 54601 United States (map)

LOCATION: Oak Grove Cemetery 1407 La Crosse Street


Interact with La Crosse SOLDIERS and CIVILIANS during the CIVIL WAR.

The 15th Annual DISCOVER THE SILENT CITY will focus on 1864 Civil War naval and infantry battles, war oddities, governmental quirks, a not so nice talk on soldiers pay, same team racial discrepancies, and more true stories from La Crosse’s past!

Take a stroll through historic Oak Grove Cemetery while learning about the folks who helped shape La Crosse, WI. Most of the re-enactors are staged next to the gravesite of the individual in which they are portraying, others are buried in other locations, and some stories are of those who had served in the Civil War and are at rest.
