Excerpt from Our Wisconsin: A School History of the Badger State

This little book has been prepared to meet the needs of schools for a short history of Wisconsin. It aims to tell the story of the state in its salient features, and to bring out the striking episodes which have lent picturesqueness to the earlier periods of our history and significance to the later developments when the commonwealth was in the making. It is not intended that the chapters dealing with the later development of the state shall serve as more than an introduction to these topics, which have been so fully treated in the special histories that have been published.

The teacher of Wisconsin history should have at hand for reference the latest edition of the Blue Book and one of the more complete histories such as Thwaites' "Wisconsin," of the American Commonwealth series. The history of the state should always be kept in strict subordination to that of the United States, although we should not undervalue the trials and sacrifices made by the pioneers of the Badger Commonwealth. To understand and appreciate what these men and women did for us is an important step in the development in our young people of the ideals of citizenship that obtain in our Wisconsin.

The basis of this book is "The Leading Events of Wisconsin History" written in 1898 by Henry E. Legler. The publications of the Wisconsin Historical Society and the many works of the late R. G. Thwaites have also been used constantly in verifying statements of fact.
