This fall, the Wisconsin Historical Society Press released its six-volume classic collection, 'The History of Wisconsin,' in e-book format. This version makes Wisconsin history easier than ever to access and research. Published between 1973 and 1998, the collection remains the definitive work on Wisconsin's beginnings, from the arrival of the French explorer Jean Nicolet in 1634, through the Civil War and Industrial Revolution, to the technological innovation and population shifts to and from Wisconsin cities and suburbs. Including nearly 400 images, illustrations of territorial Wisconsin and portraits of early residents, this collection provides an in-depth history of the state.
