Collections of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, Volume 11

Documents detailing the early history of the Great Lakes Region.

Description

This volume is a collection of several different kinds of important historical documents published by the State Historical Society of Wisconisn. It opens with a biographical article and bibliography of Jean Nicolet, the first European to reach the Wisconsin Region in 1634. It continues with a compilation of Western State Papers from periods of differing domination of the Upper Midwest during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Selections from the third and fourth voyages of Radisson and Groseilliers (1658-1659) follow and chronicle their adventures along the Fox-Wisconsin watercourse, in the Chequamegon Bay vincinity, and in the Chippewa River's headwaters. A group of papers from the Canadian Archives illuminates the Wisconsin region's hisotry during the Revolutionary War and encompasses copies of all the Haldimand Papers which mention operations in that area. The Haldimand Papers contain the correspondence of British officers with each other and with their commanding officer, General Frederick Haldimand, at Quebec. Thompson Maxwell's narrative describes what may have been the first voyage across Lake Superior under British command, and there are additional documents detailing life at the fur-trading post of Milwaukee.. There are also descriptions of Prairie du Chien and Green Bay in the early neneteenth century. This volume provides much information on the fur trade and the Native Americans who participated in it. The material included also discusses European, Native American, and American relations as well as boundary issues, local government structures, Jefferson County's early days, and the financial career of Andrew Mitchell. An index appears at the end of the volume.
