Milwaukee Mayhem: Murder and Mystery in the Cream City's First Century

Wednesday, May 31, 2023

From murder and matchstick men to all-consuming fires, painted women, and Great Lakes disasters, historian and author Matthew J. Prigge uncovers the little-remembered and rarely told history of the underbelly of Milwaukee. This presentation will offer a new perspective on Milwaukee's early years, forgoing the major historical signposts found in traditional histories and focusing instead on the strange and brutal tales of mystery, vice, murder, and disaster that were born of the city's transformation from lakeside settlement to American metropolis. Join us for an engaging and occasionally chilling narrative of a forgotten Milwaukee. Free to attend. No registration required.
