The Making of Milwaukee
Milwaukee was known as “good land” to Native Americans, a place of abundant natural resources. It became, over the decades, a major Great Lakes port, a stronghold of industry, a capital of ethnic diversity, a model of good government, and one of the most livable large cities in America. “The Making of Milwaukee” is a fast-paced PowerPoint program that captures the full sweep of the Milwaukee area’s history, from its wilderness past to the complex patterns of the 21st century. Copies of the fourth edition of “The Making of Milwaukee” will be available for sale and signing.
