BeschreibungExcerpt from Wisconsin
The history of Wisconsin concerns itself with three political regimes - those of New France, Great Britain, and the United States. Its civilization, however, is of the first and third, for the influence of the second was negligible. When, in 1816, American troops first took possession of Green Bay and Prairie du Chien, the country between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River was still French to the core. Indeed, still another decade was to pass before the Americanizing process began to show results. These came, not by transforming the character or habits of our mild-mannered and non-progressive habitans and voyageurs, who remained quite unchanged through full two centuries of residence in Wisconsin, but by means of the influx of New Yorkers and New Englanders, who gradually crowded them to the wall. It was nearly twenty years after American occupation began, before the fur-trade, now managed by Americans but almost wholly manned by French, ceased to he Wisconsin's dominating industry.
