Autobiography of a young lawyer who lived in Chippewa Valley, Wisconsin in the 1850s


Located less than a hundred miles east of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Chippewa Valley is centered on the Eau Claire River in western Wisconsin. This database is an autobiographical narrative written by a young lawyer searching for the best community in the Upper Midwest to practice law in the late 1850s. It provides a revealing look into the life of one young man anxious to "get ahead" in early frontier America. It also includes detailed descriptions of Reed's Landing, Eau Claire, Menomonie, and Chippewa Falls in the middle of the nineteenth century. For those wishing to better understand the context in which their Midwest ancestors may have lived, this can be a useful narrative.
