Wisconsin State Overview

“It lies red” or “in the red bed” is probably the translation of the word Meskousing from the Algonquian language, those Native American tribes who lived in the area of ​​modern-day Wisconsin. What was meant was the great river, today’s Wisconsin River. French explorer Jacques Marquette recorded this name in his journals in 1673 when he arrived in the country. It later became Ouisconsin and when English settlers arrived the name changed to its modern form. Today’s spelling was officially established by law in 1845.

The Frenchman Jean Nicolet was the first European to arrive in the territory in 1624 and began exploring the country. He founded the Green Bay Colony . During the next 150 years, the area was primarily settled by French traders. In 1763 France ceded the territory to Great Britain. After the 1763 Revolution, Wisconsin was taken over by the United States, but remained under British control de facto until the War of 1812.

In the nineteenth century “Yankees” (New Englanders and people from upstate New York ) as well as settlers from Germany, Scandinavia and Switzerland settled there.

Originally, the main sources of income for the state were agriculture, mining and the timber industry. The state had lush mature pine and hemlock forests. As forest clearing progressed, farmers settled down and now farmed the deforested land. Because of the fertile but rocky soil, dairy farming has become widespread there. Industrial centers sprang up along Lake Michigan and into Fox Valley. Because from there the transport of the raw materials (wood and iron ore) to the seaports was quite easy.

After the First World War, the state became one of the most important export countries for durable and durable goods and was also called the “tool box of the world”. In the north, agriculture lost importance due to crop failures, among other things, and forestry returned.

Tourism became increasingly important in the late 20th century. In particular, the fields of medicine and education took on a dominant role and ousted heavy industry from its leading position.

Geographical location

Wisconsin is located in the northern part of the United States and is bordered to the north by the Montreal River on the border with Canada, the Great Lake (Lake Superior) and the state of Michigan. Lake Michigan forms the natural border to the east, Illinois to the south and Iowa and Minnesota to the west.
