The War of 1812 in Wisconsin: The Battle for Prairie du Chien, presented by Mary Elise Antoine

In The War of 1812 in Wisconsin, author Mary Elise Antoine brings a little-known, strategic, corner of the war's history to life. She details the story of a years'-long fight for control of the Northern Mississippi and the "western country," a struggle that culminated in a three-day siege of the area's lynchpin fur trade center in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, in July of 1814.
