Visitors to the state can expect to encounter a range of weather conditions throughout the year, from hot and humid summers to cold and snowy winters(Wisconsin Temperature Map, n.d.).

The History of Wisconsin

Wisconsin has a rich history that dates back to the pre-colonial era, with Native American tribes settling in the region long before European explorers arrived(Tribal Lands Map, n.d.). The state is home to several indigenous nations, including the Ojibwe, Menominee, and Ho-Chunk, among others(Tribal Nations of Wisconsin, n.d.). These tribes have a deep connection to the land and have played a significant role in shaping Wisconsin's history and culture. The Ojibwe, for example, had settlements in various locations, including St. Croix, Lac Courte Oreilles, and Red Cliff(Location of Indian Settlements in Wisconsin, n.d.). The history of Wisconsin cannot be told without acknowledging the contributions and impact of these native communities.
Wisconsin's history took a new turn with the arrival of European explorers and colonizers in the 17th century(European Exploration in Wisconsin, n.d.). French explorers were the first to reach Wisconsin, hoping to find new trade routes to the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico(History of Wisconsin, n.d.). France took the lead in colonizing the Upper Midwest region, with soldiers, missionaries, and fur traders establishing settlements and trading posts(The French Lead the Way: c. 1500-1763, n.d.). The arrival of Europeans had a significant impact on the native communities, leading to conflicts over land, resources, and sovereignty(Wisconsin Native American Indian Tribes Map, n.d.). The systematic colonization of North America during the Age of Exploration is illustrated on a map, highlighting the process of European settlement in the region(European Colonization of North America c.1750 (Illustration), n.d.).

Wisconsin became a territory of the United States in 1836, with its boundaries established based on the location of battles and settlements(Wisconsin Territory, n.d.)(How Wisconsin's Counties Got Their Shapes, n.d.). The state's modern development began with statehood in 1848, with the population growing rapidly due to immigration and industrialization(Wisconsin, n.d.). Today, Wisconsin is a thriving state with a diverse economy and a rich cultural heritage. The history of Wisconsin is preserved in various maps and atlases, including those available online from the Society Archives(Maps and Atlases in Our Collections, n.d.). The evolution of Wisconsin's county boundaries is also depicted on maps, highlighting the changes over time(New Sectional Map of the State of Michigan and Territory ..., n.d.). The state's history is a testament to the resilience of its people and their ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
