History Sandwiched In:
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, colorful chronicler Albert Coryer (Core-yer) and the grandson of a fur trade voyageur-turned-farmer, collected history and folklore from his older family members, neighbors, community members, Native Americans, and fur trading era descendants in Prairie du Chien, Wis. Coauthor Mary Elise Antione will share some of the interesting, funny, and significant stories Coryer collected as detailed in her book "Frenchtown Chronicles of Prairie du Chien: History and Folklore from Wisconsin's Frontier."
