Wisconsin Historical Society Reference Maps

| |

Wisconsin is a state that certainly knows how to take care of its history, and the Wisconsin Historical Society has been doing an admirable job of presenting items from the Badger State’s history to the general public since 1846. Recently, they expanded their online efforts by creating a reference collection of thematic maps that offer spatial representations of different phenomena and occurrences throughout the state’s history. From the main page, visitors can explore the selections chronologically through such headings as ‘Early Native Peoples’, ‘Wisconsin in the Civil War Era’, and ‘The Progressive Era’. The maps have been culled from a variety of print publications and other sources, including the landmark multivolume work, ‘The History of Wisconsin’, which was published between 1973 and 1998.
