Shipping from the State of South Dakota to Wisconsin
The territory that would become South Dakota was added to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The first permanent American settlement was established at Fort Pierre by the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804. White settlement of the territory in the 1800s led to clashes with the Sioux, as some of the lands had been granted to the tribe by an earlier treaty. Nevertheless, the territory was incorporated into the union on November 2, 1889, along with North Dakota.
Due to a controversy over which state would be admitted to the union first, President Benjamin Harrison shuffled the bills and signed one at random, with the order going unrecorded, though North Dakota is traditionally listed first. Today, a major part of South Dakota’s economy is fueled by tourism–visitors flock to the state to see Mt. Rushmore, which features 60-foot-tall sculptures of the faces of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln. Famous South Dakotans include newscaster Tom Brokaw, senator, and vice president Hubert Humphrey and model actress Cheryl Ladd.
Shipping to the State of South Dakota to Wisconsin
Wisconsin became a U.S. territory just after the American Revolution and soon after began charming settlers looking for work in its mining, lumber, and dairy sectors. It was accepted into the union as the 30th state in the United States in 1848. Years before the Civil War, Wisconsin was a vital stop on the Underground Railroad, with many enslaved people passing through the state in their search for freedom in Canada.
This day, Wisconsin leads the United States in dairy production and is popular for of its superior cheddar cheese. The cheese is so rich, residents sometimes refer to themselves as “cheeseheads.” Reputable people from Wisconsin include architect Frank Lloyd Wright, magician Harry Houdini, and U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur.
