History of Wisconsin: A Captivating Guide to the History of the Badger State, Starting from the Arrival of Jean Nicolet through the Fox Wars, War of 1812, and Gilded Age to the Present
The pristine lakes, towering forests, and breathtaking views of Wisconsin are well-known sights that attract large numbers of tourists every year. Thousands of people flock to Wisconsin each year to hunt in its woods, fish in its waters, or kayak along its many rivers. There are plenty of museums to walk through, too, and much to see within them, from the tragic stories in the Peshtigo Fire Museum to the awe-inspiring sight of the fossilized Boaz mastodon at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
However, the history of Wisconsin is so much more than just exhibits in museums. The 30th state has a long, rich story behind its modern-day facade. Thousands of years ago, ancient peoples hunted giant beasts on the frozen glaciers that have now given way to rivers and lakes. Rich cultures populated the frigid early forests of Wisconsin, eventually giving way to the arrival of French explorers. Soon, the British took over, ushering in an era of booming colonization, and Wisconsin saw its first recorded war. With the American Revolution, Wisconsin became free, and that brought a whole new set of challenges for its people to face.
Wisconsin’s history is as richly detailed and relentlessly interesting as its glorious landscapes. Its history has always paralleled that of the United States, giving a fascinating deeper glimpse into a story we all know so well. Wisconsin saw the effects of colonialism, stood up for the rights of all people during the Civil War, and endured the wrath of fire. And in this book, you'll discover its story.
