of current knowledge on the human digestive process. Col. Zachary Taylor, who later became the 12th U.S. President, was the commanding officer at Fort Crawford during the Black Hawk War of 1832. Taylor oversaw the surrender of Black Hawk in Prairie du Chien. Lt. Jefferson Davis, who later became president of the Confederate States of America, was stationed at Fort Crawford at the same time. Here Jefferson Davis met Zachary Taylor's daughter, Sarah "Knoxie" Taylor (Sarah Knox Taylor), whom he married in 1835. Davis, Jefferson (in Wisconsin) thumb left Illustration of Prairie du Chien in 1870 (File:Prairie du Chien map 1870.gif) Outside the walls of the fort, early nineteenth century life in Prairie du Chien was still dominated by the fur trade. Prairie du Chien's most well-known traders during this time were Michel Brisbois, Joseph Rolette, Nathan Myrick, and Hercules L. Dousman. Dousman built a fortune in the fur trade, which, combined with income from investments in land, steamboats, and railroads, propelled him to become the first millionaire in Wisconsin. Dousman died in 1868, and his son, H. Louis Dousman, inherited much of his fortune. In 1870 Louis Dousman used his inheritance to construct a luxurious Victorian mansion over the site of the former Fort Shelby. When Louis died unexpectedly in 1886, his family renamed the home "Villa Louis" in his memory. The Dousman family continued to occupy the home until 1913. Nearly 40 years later, in 1952, the mansion became Wisconsin's first state-operated historic site. After the fur trade declined in the mid-nineteenth century, Prairie du Chien's attention shifted to agriculture and the railroad. Although the city was first connected to the Milwaukee & Mississippi Railroad (Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad) in 1857, the width of the Mississippi River posed a challenge for further expansion of the railroad into Iowa. This problem was temporarily solved by disassembling the trains at Prairie du Chien and ferrying them across the river to be put back on the tracks on the other side. A better solution was found by Michael Spettel and John Lawler, who designed a permanent pontoon bridge to span the river in 1874. Lawler took most of the credit for this invention, and made a small fortune through its operation. Lawler later donated property to establish two Catholic boarding schools in Prairie du Chien, St. Mary's Institute (now Mount Mary College of Milwaukee (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)), and Campion High School in the later part of the century. Campion High School produced several notable alumni including Vicente Fox, Congressman Leo Ryan, Governor Patrick Lucey, actors David Doyle (David Doyle (actor)), George Wendt, and Kevin McCarthy (Kevin McCarthy (actor)), and writer Garry Wills. Campion was closed in 1975. History of municipal government Prairie du Chien was incorporated as the ''Borough of Prairie des Chiens'' on September 17, 1821 by the secretary of the Michigan Territory.

Prairie du Chien is located within the Mississippi River Valley, upon a long triangular plain that is bounded on the west by the Mississippi River, on the south by the Wisconsin River, and on the east-northeast by a series of tall bluffs. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of campus was purchased on the west side of Milwaukee. The cornerstone of the new school was laid in 1928, and it opened its doors to students in 1929. Diocesan institutions Among the institutions in the Diocese of La Crosse are 10 Catholic-affiliated hospitals; Viterbo University, which enrolls 2,167 students; St. Rose of Viterbo Convent, the motherhouse of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, and the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse. The first Mass was held at the Shrine on July 31, 2008. Prairie du Chien (Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin) was home to the Jesuit-run Campion High School until its closing in 1975. - 1685 Prairie du Chien (Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin) Wisconsin United States - 1686 Arkansas Post Arkansas United States Fort Howard, along with Fort Crawford at Prairie du Chien (Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin),was constructed during the War of 1812 to protect the Fox-Wisconsin Waterway, an important regional trade and travel route between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River, from British (United Kingdom) invasion. The fort was built at the site of the earlier French Fort La Baye (and renamed Fort Edward Augustus by the British in 1761). Early life Bowlen was born in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, the son of Arvella (née Woods) and Paul Dennis Bowlen, who became a millionaire in the Canadian oil business, founding Regent Drilling as a wildcatter. Bowlen attended the University of Oklahoma and earned degrees in business (1965) and law (1968). The younger Bowlen became wealthy in his own right by becoming a successful lawyer in Edmonton, Alberta. He also worked as an executive for his father's company and as a real estate developer and had major investments in the mining industry. '''Fort Winnebago''' was a 19th century fortification of the United States Army located on a hill between the Fox (Fox River (Wisconsin)) and Wisconsin Rivers in Portage, Wisconsin. It formed part of a chain of fortifications along the Fox-Wisconsin Waterway that also included Fort Howard (Fort Howard (Wisconsin)) in Green Bay, Wisconsin and Fort Crawford in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. Fort Winnebago was constructed in 1828 as part of an effort to maintain peace between white settlers and the region's Native American (Native Americans in the United States) tribes following the Winnebago War of 1827. The fort's location was chosen not only because of its proximity to the site of Red Bird's surrender in the Winnebago War, but also because of the strategic importance of Portage, Wisconsin, which, as the city's name implies, was the site of an important portage on the Fox-Wisconsin Waterway, a highly travelled connection between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. Fort Winnebago's location near the portage allowed it to regulate transportation between the lakes and the Mississippi. In this treaty, the tribes agreed to land cession of three large tracts of land: two strips of land 20 miles wide each on either side of the boundary established by the first (1825) Treaty of Prairie du Chien (roughly from La Crosse, Wisconsin to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin), extending from the Mississippi River to the Des Moines River in what today is southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa; and a large triangular tract of land in southeastern Nebraska and northwestern Missouri, western Iowa and southern Minnesota, from Kansas City, Missouri due north to the Des Moines River, to the area about Spirit Lake, Iowa to Worthington, Minnesota, down Rock River (Rock River (Iowa)), down the Missouri River and back to Kansas City. Additional tribes later ceded the large triangular tract as the Platte Purchase in 1836. Construction This was to be the second US fort between St. Louis and Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. The US wanted to establish a military presence to dissuade the French and English Canadians (who traded in areas nearby) from encroaching upon the unorganized territory. After its losses at several forts during the War of 1812, the US Army wanted to increase its presence on the Mississippi frontier. The fort also would serve to protect American settlers within the area and to help control or remove the Sauk, the American Indians (Indigenous peoples of the Americas) in the region. The Sauk disapproved of its construction; Black Hawk wrote in his memoir, "When we arrived we found that the troops had come to build a fort on Rock Island. This, in our opinion, was a contradiction to what we had done– 'to prepare for war in time of peace.' We did not object, however, to their building their fort on the island, but were very sorry."

A second Melbourne club, the South Dragons, will enter the league in season 2006 07. The NBL has also become the first Australian sporting league to field a team from Asia with a Singapore side scheduled to play in the 2006 07 season. Many different spaces have been used for productions, as well as conventional theatres: airports and tower blocks, community halls and drill halls, ferries and forests. The National Theatre of Scotland also tours some of its work internationally (for example, ''Black Watch'' has toured to the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland). Unwilling to directly support French colonialism, and somewhat disillusioned by the mixed results of American intervention in Korea, Congress instead opted for Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' proposal for "United Action" in Southeast Asia. "United Action" was an outgrowth of the Eisenhower Administration's "New Look" policy, whereby local forces should be called upon for the defense of their territories rather than relying on direct US military involvement. "United Action" called for Vietnamese forces to be responsible for the defense of Vietnam, although with US assistance. The direct results of "United Action" were Washington's tacit acceptance of the upcoming Geneva Accords and the creation of SEATO, a coalition of the United States, United Kingdom, France, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Thailand, and Pakistan to draw a firm line against communist expansion and make war in Southeast Asia less likely. The signatories would share the military burdens of protecting Southeast Asia from "indirect aggression." The album was recorded at the last show of the group's 1982 tour of Australia and New Zealand and was originally only released in those countries. However, a small number were exported to the UK and, in the sleevenotes to the 2002 UK CD edition, Chris Knox, who had recorded the show, stated that Mark E. Smith had been very unhappy at copies appearing in the UK and that exports ceased at his request. The album immediately became a highly valued collectors item. '''''Metro''''' is a glossy monthly lifestyle magazine published in New Zealand by ACP Media. It has a strong focus on the city of Auckland, with reportage of issues and society. The magazine was first published independently by Warwick Roger and Bruce Palmer. The '''New Zealand Nurses Organisation''' (NZNO) is New Zealand's (New Zealand) largest trade union and professional organisation that represents the nursing profession, midwives and caregivers. The '''Cardrona Bra Fence''' was a controversial tourist attraction in Central Otago, New Zealand, where passers-by started to add bra (Brassiere)s to a rural fence, with the fence eventually growing into a famous tourists attraction with hundreds of individual bras. The fence was on a public road reserve adjacent to farm property in the Cardrona Valley area southwest of Wanaka, near a motorcar racetrack. Music festivals have a long and chequered history in New Zealand. The first large outdoor rock music festival was The Great Ngaruawahia Music Festival in 1973. The largest was the 1979 Nambassa festival, one of several Nambassa festivals held around that time, in Golden Valley, just north of Waihi.

It formed in 1978, playing a winter season (April-September). In 1998 the competition was shifted to a summer competition between October and April, mainly to avoid competing directly against Australia's various football codes. '''''Heyday''''' is an album by Australian rock band The Church (The Church (band)), released in January 1986. The album marked the first occasion when group compositions dominated one of the band's releases. Although most of the keyboards utilized on previous recordings had been stripped back, the album saw a greater amount of embellishment with the addition of strings and brass. While at the time ''Heyday'' featured more focus on the guitar interplay than anything since ''The Blurred Crusade'', solos had been cut to a bare minimum. Rolling Stone said the album "suggest s a more electrified version of Love (Love (band))'s '68 orchestral rock classic Forever Changes."October 2005, Julia released her debut self-titled album on the Parachute Music label. The album garnered immense radio success, scoring four number one singles in New Zealand as well as two top 20 hits on The Rock Across Australia music chartsShe toured the United States U.S. and Australia as support act for the Parachute band in early 2006, and was a mainstage performer at AGMF '06. Julia regularly features at the annual Parachute Music Festival. Post war In March 1919, Heane took over the 1st Division Demobilisation Group at Tidworth, England (Tidworth). He returned to Australia where his appointment to the AIF ended on 7 January 1920. In July 1920 he took over command of the 11th Infantry Brigade. From April 1921 to June 1926 he commanded the 5th Infantry Brigade. He was also honorary colonel of the 4th Battalion from 1926 until he was transferred to the retired list as an honorary brigadier general in 1935. During World War II he was commander of the Volunteer Defence Corps in New South Wales from 1940 to 1942. Holmes was criticised in Australia for offering extremely lenient terms, but he was under orders to occupy, not annex, German New Guinea. Holmes became administrator of New Guinea. He relinquished the post to Colonel S Petheridge in January 1915 and returned to Australia, where his appointment to the AN&MEF was terminated on 6 February 1915. Hughes was evacuated from Gallipoli on 20 September 1915 with typhoid. He was evacuated to Australia in March 1916 suffering from typhoid and pneumonia. In July 1918, he was reappointed to the AIF and served with the Sea Transport Service. He retired in March 1920 with the rank of major general.
