Welcome to Wisconsin
 Introduction
Wisconsin is located in the Great Lakes region. The capital of the state is Madison. Wisconsin is bordered by the states of Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois. The Wisconsin Territory was formed on July 3, 1836. Wisconsin ratified its constitution March 13, 1848 and was admitted to the Union on May 29, 1848 as the thirtieth state. Wisconsin's economy was originally based on farming (especially dairy), mining, and lumbering. In the 20th century tourism became important. Its nickname is the Badger State. The per capita personal income was $32,157 in 2004.
