How did early settlers in Southeast Wisconsin "own" land before they could buy it? Michael from Black Point will give us a detailed look at an amazing Walworth County struggle in 1836 - years before the Land Office in Milwaukee started selling Government land at $1.25 per acre in 1839. It's about water power, mills and dams and before the conflict is resolved, we will find the Racine county Sheriff involved. They'll touch on a temperance society and learn about a claim jumper in Burlington! See what kind of legal trouble people got in and out of in the Wisconsin Territory...before courts and judges were readily available...frontier justice!
