Wisconsin Lutheran College was established on January 31, 1973. At the time, it had a temporary facility. Four
years later, though, the college purchased the present land and buildings that used to
house an old Catholic boys'/girls' school since the 1880s. Today, 40 years later, half a dozen new buildings have been built, 1,000 total students are enrolled there, and Forbes has ranked the institution 128th (of 600) on its list of America's Best Colleges. I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran College in the Spring of 2002.
The city of
Milwaukee, Wisconsin was incorporated on January 31, 1846 when the competing towns
of Juneautown, Kilbourntown and Walker's Point finally joined together
to establish one municipality. Up until then, they had been competing (and at times, fighting) with each other. The Milwaukee Bridge War is one such example. After the 1845 conflict, the three towns decided to set aside the fighting and join together as the city of 594,000 people that know today.
Happy Birthday guys! I have many fond memories from my time spent with both of you!
