On a Saturday in September, a few dozen people gathered in Forest Hill Cemetery in Madison, Wisconsin, at the gravesites of Fighting Bob La Follette and Belle Case La Follette. They came to rededicate the restored grave markers for the legendary orator, Wisconsin governor, U.S. Representative and Senator, and two-time presidential contender, and his equally accomplished wife, an activist for women’s suffrage, peace, and civil rights. Together, in 1909, they began publishing La Follette’s Weekly, later renamed The Progressive.
