Little Known Fact

Many bloggers noted that yesterday was the 172nd anniversary of the founding of the Wisconsin Territory.

It is much lesser known that on this day, April 21 in 1836 a spokesman for Wisconsin Fullers, Wheelwrights and Chandlers issued a proclamation announcing that the Wisconsin Territory was a tax hell and calling for a cut in the taxes on buggy whips and mustache wax.
