Westward Expansion: Daily Life on the Frontier
The Wild West for kids
19th-Century Immigration in Wisconsin
The first quarter of the nineteenth century was marked by westward migration into the regions north and west of the Ohio River. Though Wisconsin was initially a distant frontier, the small numbers of French, English, Americans, and American Indians who resided there had nonetheless explored and used the rich land and water resources that would soon bring thousands of immigrants into Wisconsin. There are many Primary Source documents on this site from the Wisconsin Historical Society.
