National Wisconsin Day - 2022-02-15
What is National Wisconsin Day?
Wisconsin was the 30th state to join the Union. It was not named 'The Badger State' because of its fur trading history, but rather because of the mining boom that occurred in the state. The Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Chippewa, and other indigenous people were here at the time of European settlement. By the 1900s, Wisconsin became known for its dairy farms and cheese. Wisconsin's economy was booming as the 19th century came to a close. First, miners came. They were followed by dairies and breweries. A new wave of German immigrants brought a new brand of dreamers to the state. Brewers cropped up across Wisconsin. They were responsible for satisfying the thirst of Wisconsinites. However, the 18th Amendment put a stop to the party, but only temporarily. After it was repealed, there were only a handful of breweries left in the state. There are plenty of lakes and rivers in Wisconsin for water recreation and sports. And don't forget the hiking trails! There's something for everyone in Wisconsin, all year-round.
