Fact of the Day: The State of Ouisconsin


Wisconsin originally got it's name from "Ouisconsin" a old name for the Wisconsin river which was named by Native Americans. It's original meaning has been lost into history, but theories usually pin it down to something that matches the river. Like "red stone place", "gathering of the waters", or "great rock" for example.
