History of Wisconsin
Wisconsin was originally dominated by a group of Indian tribes in the 17th century. The group included the Kickapoo, the Menominee-speaking Algonquian, the Winnebago-speaking Siouan, Iowa and Sioux.

The first known explorer who entered Wisconsin by chance was a Frenchman named Jean Nicolet. He appears to be on a mission to find a northwestern route to China.

He sailed west from the Gulf of Georgia over the Great Lakes in 1634. Jean Nicolet is believed to have landed near Green Bay at the Red Banks. This was followed by the arrival of the Medard des Groseilliers and Pierre Radisson into Green Bay and Chequamegon Bay during (1654-66) and (1659-60) respectively and where the fur trade with the Indians began. During the 1763 French and Indian War, the French lost control of Wisconsin to Great Britain.

Wisconsin was in British possession until 1783 when Britain signed the Treaty of Paris, and control of the state transferred to the United States. However, the founding of the United States became evident after the 1812 War between Great Britain and the United States and Wisconsin's economy expanded as it replaced the fur trade with lead mining.

Due to the lead mining boom in southwestern Wisconsin and northwestern Illinois, Wisconsin Americans were clearly visible around the 1820s. The availability of easy mineral assets led to a wave of immigration. from all over America and even Europe. The miners seek shelter in self-made holes, which earned them the nickname "badgers". This led to the moniker "State of Badger" of Wisconsin. The influx of white settlers and miners in the Midwest led to tension as the federal government, along with new settlers, attempted to remove Native Americans from their native lands. The Indians were strongly and eventually rejected after the Winnebago War of 1827 and the Black Hawk War of 1832.

The absence of any obstruction from Native Americans led to the emergence of new settlers in Wisconsin, which subsequently led to the formation of the Wisconsin Territory in 1836. The year 1840 witnessed The entry of more settlers into Wisconsin. On May 29, 1848, it became state and became the 30th state of the United States.
