Odd Wisconsin Archive
It's St. Patrick's Day again, when every cheesehead is allowed to be Irish for a day. Immigrants from Ireland played powerful roles in Wisconsin history. They settled all over the state, including not just in Milwaukee but also in the coulee country of western Wisconsin. Who were they? See the pictures and read the life stories of James Grinnell and Margaret O�Grady, both 19th-c. Irish immigrants who lived to be more than 100 years old. And don�t miss our recent book, Irish in Wisconsin, which you can order online.
