A Green Bay girlhood in the 1820s.

Reminiscenses of the Early Northwest


The author of this memoir was the daughter of Robert Irwin, one of the earliest and most prominent English-speaking residents of Green Bay. She discusses her childhood on the Wisconsin frontier, including relations with Indians, schools, churches, domestic arrangements, and travels to Milwaukee, Kenosha and Chicago when those cities were still young.
