Horsman, Reginald "Wisconsin and the War of 1812"

Wisconsin and the War of 1812: In the years leading up to the War of 1812, the territory that now makes up the state of Wisconsin was an important trade route for the British, French and Native Americans, which had an impact on the subsequent war. The communities of Mackinac, Green Bay and Prairie du Chien are discussed in depth throughout the article, covering a period of time from 1783 through 1812, and focusing in particular on British and Native American relations.
