The Wolcott Post Memorial Plaque was viewed by Fred Turk on 6 July, 2001 at the Milwaukee County Historical Society Civil War exhibit. These names were picked off of it. The plaque took up a good portion of a wall. A couple of 26th names may have been missed because chairs were set in front of the plaque.

Also viewed at the exhibit was a painting of Camp Sigel done in 1861 by an American Indian artist. The horse-drawn streetcar tracks were not in place at that time. The irregular shape of the camp is shown. There were a lot of tents.
