Wisconsin Military Housing
Wisconsin became a U.S. land following the American Revolution and shortly after started bringing settlers looking for work in its mining, lumber and dairy sectors.
It was accepted to the union as the 30th state on May 29, 1848 and Madison became its capital. In the years leading to the Civil War, Wisconsin was an important stop on the Underground Railroad, with many slaves passing through the state on their way to independence in Canada.
Now, Wisconsin leads the nation in dairy production and is known for the quality of its own cheddar cheese-residents even some times refer to themselves as "cheese heads". Famous Wisconsinites include architect Frank Lloyd Wright, magician Harry Houdini and U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur.
