Along the shores of Lake Michigan is the beautiful state of Wisconsin. Although there is some industry in cities like Milwaukee, most of the folks in these parts make their living from agriculture of one type or another. They grow a lot of wheat here, along with dairy products of all kinds. The state has seen little violence in the past few decades—from Indians, British, or Confederates—although they have provided thousands and thousands of soldiers for the agonizingly long war effort.
The U.S. Navy has begun to increase its presence in the state, especially in Milwaukee. The city is also connected by rail to Chicago, a well traveled stretch of track that funnels a constant stream of goods down into the city. Milwaukee has suffered from the British blockade, but it has managed to divert most of its shipping business to the railroads.
