Published in 1851 by prolific American cartographer JH Colton, this distinctive illustration of Wisconsin depicts the state in one of its most significant periods of growth in the mid 19th century. Colton's maps were unique in that he utilized metal engraving plates over the inferior wax engravings that were more common for the era, and the elaborate borders are a common theme for Colton's work. His cartographical style was influential throughout the 19th century, and his works appear in the Smithsonian Museum.
Wisconsin achieved statehood only three years prior to this publication but had been expanding massively in the years leading up to its inclusion in the United States. German, Irish, and Norwegian immigrants were flocking to the state, and its population had grown from 31,000 to over 300,000.
As lead mining diminished in the early years of statehood Wisconsin's economy diversified, dairy and agriculture industries became primary economic drivers for the state. The large immigrant population found familiar territory, and breweries became common throughout the state and would remain a staple of Wisconsin's culture through the present day. Lumber and paper milling also became staple industries for the state in pre-industrialization years.
During the mid 19th century Nelson Dewey, the first Governor, emphasized the building of critical infrastructure, including railways and canals, to provide further access for grain and lumber to be exported from the state. The 1850s were a period of tremendous growth for Wisconsin, and this illustration allows the viewer a glimpse of the state's rich history.
