The War of 1812 convinced America that in order
to control their vast country they must occupy and
develop it. In Prairie Du Chien this process began
with the construction of Fort Crawford
in the summer of 1816
Symbol of government and authority, social and
cultural institution, haven for visitors and place of
duty, the fort meant many things to many people.
It's long shadow fell on every corner of the
island and surrounding prairie.
