Birthplace Of A Commonwealth (1976)

This history of Wisconsin’s Brown County (and the towns that make up the county) was published in the year of America’s Bicentennial. From the earliest visit by John Nicolet in 1634 through the year of publication, Birthplace Of A Commonwealth tells the tale of the Green Bay area and the people who made it what it is today. While only a small portion of the book deals specifically with the Packers, we found it worthwhile to add to our football library. As with anything, understanding the past helps us to understand the present and future. 

Above and below, the two pages which reference the Green Bay Packers. 

We do love seeing the old photos of the city. There are many photos much older than this in the book.
