    Age 3
    American settlers began mining the Wisconsin Territory in the early 1800's. The lead ore in the territory had largely been mined previously by American Indians. By 1829, nearly 4,000 miners had moved to Wisconsin Territory. The miners became known as badgers as they burrowed into hillsides for shelter. The name eventually represented the state and Wisconsin is now known as the Badger State. (Wisconsin Historical Society: Lead Mining in Southwestern Wisconsin)
    1830 · The Second Great Awakening
    Age 4
    Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.
    1854 · The Creation of the Republican Party
    Age 28
    A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim that the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.
