Plumb, Ralph G. (Ralph Gordon), 1881-1976 "Highlights of Manitowoc"

Highlights of Manitowoc: This is, in the author's words, "a brief and fragmentary attempt to reflect a few pages of national history into the mirror of events in the Manitowoc region." Those events begin with its settling in 1836 and include brief notes on early commercial fishing, its shipbuilding industry, the hysteria occasioned by the Sioux Uprising of 1862, and contributions of its citizens during the Civil War and to the professions.
