Wisconsin. State Map.
Northern Wisconsin has an upland bedrock and is dominated by a vast highland with the state’s highest mountain, Huron Mountain (604 meters above sea level). To the south is a semi-circular undulating plain with sandstone bedrock. At the far south, a cuesta landscape dominates with alternating ridges and lowers. Most of Wisconsin was covered by the latest inland ice, which disappeared about 11,000 years ago, and this has resulted in a great deal of sea wealth and a variety of glacial landforms.
Wisconsin. Wisconsin Dells in the Wisconsin River, central Wisconsin, are sandstone formations eroded after the recent ice age.
The state mainly has a chilly continental climate, which is only partially mitigated by the Upper Lake and Lake Michigan. Madison in the south has an average temperature in January of −8 °C and in July of 22 ° C. The annual rainfall is in Madison 630 mm, but in northeastern Wisconsin it exceeds 1,000 mm.
Wisconsin has low population growth (about 50 percent of the average in the United States). Of the population, 86 percent are white, many of German or Scandinavian origin. In recent decades, many blacks have moved to Wisconsin, and now amount to 7 percent, the majority living in Milwaukee where they make up 40 percent of the city’s 600,200 residents. The Milwaukee – Waukesha – West Allis metropolitan area has 1.6 million residents (2016). The countryside houses 1/3 of the state’s population. See towns in Wisconsin.
The economy is mainly based on three sectors: industry, agriculture and tourism. Wisconsin is the United States leading state in the production of milk and dairy products, such as cheese. The plant cultivation (maize, oats and grassy plants) mainly provides fodder for the livestock. Forestry is the basis for a significant pulp and paper industry.
Most of Wisconsin’s industry is in the southeast along Lake Michigan, especially in Milwaukee. The most important are the metal and machine industries as well as the food industry. The brewing industry (beer) also plays a big role.
Wisconsin. Millers is a classic beer from Milwaukee. The brewery was founded in 1855 by a German immigrant. Nowadays, Miller’s beer is produced in several locations in the United States but still has a brewery and headquarters in Milwaukee.
Tourism is of the greatest importance in the northern parts, and sport fishing is economically more important than commercial fishing in the Great Lakes. Madison is the seat of the University of Wisconsin, which has about 25 branches around the state.
Tourism and gastronomy
Tourism provides significant revenue. Primarily, it is nature that attracts, not least the many lakes. Sport fishing is now economically more important than commercial fishing in the Great Lakes. The hunt (deer, small game) also attracts many visitors. Important destinations for nature enthusiasts are the Aposte Islands National Lakeshore archipelago in the Upper Lake and the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverways.
The state also has a number of colonial and forest exploration museums and monuments, such as logging camps such as History land (Hayward) and Paul Bunyan Logging Camp (Chippewa Museum, Eau Claire) as well as Heritage Hill and the Rail America Rail Museum in Green Bay. For Scandinavian visitors, Little Norway, a farm from 1856, is about 25 km west of Madison of interest. The beautifully located capital is a major tourist destination, as is the big city of Milwaukee, which is known for its beer breweries.
Wisconsin has a wealth of food traditions, a mix of Native American features and influence from early European colonizers; the cheese, the sausages and the lively brewery industry are reminiscent of the many Germans who settled here. Many traditional recipes also boast German and also Scandinavian features, such as old-time beef stew, a cabbage-like dish cooked with beer, roast goose with red cabbage and green beans and potatoes (hot potato salad with green beans)). Fish are eaten fried, but a traditional recipe with Native American roots is the planked lake trout, where the fish (in this case trout) is filled with herbs and tied to a plank of fragrant wood to bake over the fire (or in the oven).Wilted green salad is happy to serve this, the salad is flavored with bacon fat, which breaks well with the fish taste.
From the middle of the 17th century, France claimed supremacy over the area. This passed in 1763 to the United Kingdom and 1783 to the United States. Wisconsin became territory in 1836 and the state in 1848 and then developed rapidly through immigration, mainly from Germany and Scandinavia. Agriculture and dairy were the most important for a long time, but after the turn of the 1900s, extensive industrialization began.
Politically, the “progressive” wing of the Republicans dominated, led by Robert La Follette and his sons, who at the beginning of the 20th century was at the forefront of comprehensive reform legislation in the United States. In 1946, the party’s conservative faction took over power with Joseph McCarthy’s victory in the Senate election that year. Democrats have been progressing strongly since the 1950s and are now evenly matched with Republicans.
