Prairie du Chien: French, British, American

By Peter Scanlan
Banta Publishing, 1937; Prairie du Chien Historical Society, 1998 (3rd reprint)

The story of Prairie du Chien is the history of the Mississippi Frontier in the late 18th and 19th centuries. Dr. Peter L. Scanlan conducted research on the community and the nationally-important events which occurred at Prairie du Chien. He combed archives, finding rich information buried in the dust of time. These myriad facts he combined into a engaging history. Though written in 1937, Prairie du Chien: French, British, American still stands as the most definitive work on Wisconsin's second oldest community.
