Famous for its cheese and dairy production, Wisconsin had a long road to territorial independence. Britain acquired it after the French and Indian War in 1763 and maintained control until after the War of 1812. Once it became its own state, however, it made its mark as one of the most progressive in the nation, establishing pensions for the blind and unemployment compensation before any other state. The state is ranked 18th in education spending.
