The Wisconsin Historical Society has a "Today in History" feature on its website that alerts the viewer to what happened on this day in Wisconsin history.  I just happened to note that this was the day in 1904 when the State Capitol fire occurred. That fire dramatically impacted the Wisconsin Free Library Commission and the State Law Library which we reported on in an earlier post.
