Excerpt from Memorial Day Annual

One of the most interesting things in this Memorial room is an upright glass case with Old Abe, the war eagle of the 8th Wisconsin, mounted on a perch inside. This old eagle was car ried through the Civil war and became a notable bird, as well known as a major general. When his regiment was mustered out Of service Old Abe was given a comfortable home in the capitol and the best Of care, but he died March 26th, 1881, when he was twenty years old. After his death his remains were mounted and no relic Of our civil war has been more highly cherished.

On his late visit to the capitol President Roosevelt took a look at this Memorial Hall. He was delighted to see Old Abe, saying that he had always felt a lively interest in him ever since he had, when a boy, read about him in his school reader.
