Wisconsin contributed significantly to the military activities of the United States since it became a state in 1848. During the Civil War, for instance, Wisconsin made a major contribution to support the Union. About 50% of Wisconsin's adult male population served in the Civil War, a percentage exceeded only by the service of state citizens during World War II, when more than 80% of Wisconsin's adult male population served in the military. Moreover, the mobilization of Wisconsin's domestic economy during 1941-1945 added tens of thousands of women and teenagers to the numbers of state citizens who assisted in the American was effort.
