Wisconsin, which was explored by French explorer Jean Nicolet in 1634, became a U.S. territory in 1783, though it was under English control until after the War of 1812. Famous for being the center of abolitionism, Wisconsin invoked the American concept of nullification when it defied the "Fugitive Slave Act" in the 1850s. The Republican Party was founded there by abolitionists. The history, people, culture, and politics of Wisconsin are the focus of blogs in this category.
