A Between of Two Great Lakes:
The Beginning Years: Wisconsin became a U.S. territory in 1836, following the American Revolution and soon thereafter began to attract settlers that were looking for work in its mining industry. The Wisconsin Territory consisted of a present-day Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, and parts of North and South Dakota. Since its admission as 30th state to the Union on May 29, 1848, Wisconsin has been ethnically heterogeneous, with Yankees being among the first to arrive from the original eastern United States colonies.
More History: The American Indian population in Wisconsin first saw White settlers with the arrival of French and English fur traders. There were many wars with Indian Natives including the Black Hawk war in the years predating the territorial declaration. Eleven Native American tribes still live in Wisconsin to this day. Obviously, the years of 1787 to 1848 were a great marketplace for fur trade, given the climate of the location of Wisconsin.
Crisp Clean Air Makes Dairy a Great Commodity: Wisconsin is home to a farming industry that specializes in dairy products including milk and cheese. The crisp, clean northern winds of Wisconsin make it a great vacationing spot. The bright blue skies of Wisconsin are a gem and photographer’s dream. especially for the astral-photographer. Because of the absence of night lights, it is very easy indeed to be able to see even the faintest of 5th and 6th magnitude stars and the Milky Way Galaxy on those nice nights. Towards the last weeks in June, the upper Wisconsin areas experience a mere four and a half hours of pure darkness due to the angle of the Sun.
The Great Location of Wisconsin: As a Midwestern state, Wisconsin forms a gateway to the crisp, clear northern states. Pools are not commonplace in the state of Wisconsin as they cease to exist somewhere by the time you enter the state line to the south. The state is the smack dab in the middle state in area of mileage, at number 25. Wisconsin is the home to the 14,500-year-old mammoth bones archaeological find.
