Fur Trade Fare Eighteenth-century French and French Canadian voyageurs, crisscrossing the wilderness hauling goods and furs for the traders, became adept at supplementing their spartan ration. The ration, called “found,” supplied by their employers as part of their pay, was standard well into the 1830s: one bushel of corn and two pounds of fat a month. The corn, which had been leached, washed, and dried, was like hominy; the fat was usually tallow, and the voyageurs felt well treated when it was the better salt pork, bear grease, or beaver fat.

His ideas were adapted for the American scene by journalists Albert Brisbane and Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune. Fourierites held that the solution to social problems was to reorganize society into associations of small, harmonious, cooperative groups, known as Phalanxes, that would work and live together for the betterment of all. The plan was communal, not communistic, for workers were to be paid according to the relative importance of their jobs and the quality of their work, the rights of private property were maintained, and capital was to earn profits.

This represented a nearly fourfold increase from 1830, and 70 percent of this population lived wholly south of the Fox-Wisconsin portage. In those years, too, Milwaukee was established and grew to almost three thousand inhabitants. Milwaukee was the latest boom city to be fueled by the Erie Canal, which, after its opening in 1825, made the Great Lakes one of the important immigrant routes west. By the end of the 1830s, the new settlers had firmly set Wisconsin on the economic course it followed into the 1920s as primarily an agricultural state.
