The event site is-a restored, 19th century Scandinavian immigrant homestead, including a large barn built by a Badger veteran in 1864, located on hundreds of acres of beautiful, wooded farmland with a stream. The scenario is to accurately portray a detachment of Wisconsin infantry and artillery camped at the homestead, close to Confederate lines, protecting it from rebel sharpshooters and artillery.
Norskedalen is 15 miles S.E. of La Crosse; about 95 miles N.W. of Madison. See map.
