Tom Luljak with Christopher Cantwell, assistant professor of history at UWM.

If you are a history buff, Milwaukee is a great place to dive into the past. With its many ethnic neighborhoods and a lively political landscape, Milwaukee's history is fascinating.

On this edition of UWM Today, we look at Milwaukee through another lens, one that helps us understand our city by examining the impact religion has had shaping the community. Our tour guide is Christopher Cantwell, assistant professor of history at UWM. Cantwell is leading a project that chronicles the history of the many churches found throughout the city.
