Happy 165th Birthday to My Home State!

Today, in 1848, Wisconsin became the thirtieth state! Happy Birthday, Wisconsin!

And I have to post our anthem, On Wisconsin. Sorry, I couldn't find one with the lyrics, so here they are.

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Grand old Badger State!

We, thy loyal sons and daughters,
Hail thee, good and great.
On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Champion of the right,
"Forward", our motto,
God will give thee might!

And for advertising purposes [wink], here's a short film by the Leclerc Brothers on Sheboygan County in northern Wisconsin (warning: the footage is so pretty you might just want to move there [grin]):
