Wisconsin Handbook, 1856

Descriptive handbook originally published in 1856 about Wisconsin

Description

Given territorial status in 1836 and granted statehood in 1848, Wisconsin grew in population from 300,000 to 775,000 in just the first ten years as a state. This database is a reprint of a handbook for the state originally published in 1856. It provides descriptions of the public lands, educational opportunities, commercial statistics, and counties in that year. It also includes information regarding the 1855 state census and a comparison with it and the 1850 federal census. For researchers of Wisconsin ancestors, this database can illuminate historical and geographic aspects of the area not commonly known.
