French traders and missionaries first settled Wisconsin in 1670 and it was part of the country known as New Prance from 1634 until it was surrendered to the British in 1763 and to the United States in 1783 as a part of the Northwest territory. Wisconsin was admitted to the Union May 29. 1848. The Legislature consists of a Senate of 33 members elected for four years, one half (16 or 17 alternately) being elected each two years, and an Assembly of 100 members all elected for two years. The state has 11 counties.

At the beginning of Wisconsin's recorded history, the Indians of this area possessed a culture which had advanced to a degree midway between that of the superior culture of the Aztecs of Mexico and that of more backward tribes such as the Utes. They lived in villages which, in numerous instances, were situated where many a thriving city and town stands today. In the early summer season the men were content to stay close to the villages while the women tilled the soil and planted corn but before summer waned they would leave to hunt buffalo. Meanwhile, the women would go fishing, gather material for mats, or work in mines from which they obtained ore for making implements or ornaments.
