Description
The Wisconsin Story: 150 People, Places, and Turning Points that Shaped the Badger State offers readers engaging vignettes about everything Wisconsin. From portraits of significant figures like Robert and Belle La Follette, Golda Meir, and Edna Ferber, to stories of important events like the Black Hawk War, 1960s campus protests, and oleo smuggling, The Wisconsin Story takes readers on a fun and informative ride all across the Badger State. Where was Calvin Coolidge's summer White House? What was the 'anti-corset resolution?' And why was a cow named Ollie milked on an airplane? Award-winning newspaper columnist Dennis McCann's talent for distilling complex subjects into brief stories that pack a punch makes this collection the perfect answer to the question 'what makes Wisconsin, Wisconsin?'

Description
"The Wisconsin Story was published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on the occasion of the Wisconsin Sesquicentennial in 1998. Columnist Dennis McCann was given total freedom to choose 150 topics for columns that ran in the newspaper through the year and were then published as a book. The topics cover a broad spectrum of state history, from significant figures such as Robert and Belle LaFollette, Golda Meir, Edna Ferber, W.D. Hoard, and many more, to important times such as the Black Hawk War, campus protests, the legal oleo era, and others. The strange and unusual are also represented here, including that time a cow was milked in an airplane, medical quacks convincing people that uranium would heal them, and of course the origins of Watertown's famous stuffed geese.",--Provided by publisher.
