the Julien Dubuque monument.

from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica

Dubuque is opposite the boundary between Wisconsin and Illinois. Pop. (1890) 30,311; (1900) 16,297; (1905, state census) 41,941 (including 6835 foreign-born, most whom were German and Irish from the 1910 U.S. census) 38,494.

As early as 1788 Julien Dubuque (1765-1810), attracted by the lead deposits in the vicinity,  settled here and carried on the mining industry until his death.

In June 1829 miners from Galena, Illinois, attempted to make a settlement here in direct violation of Indian treaties.  They were driven away by United States troops under orders from then Colonel Zachary Taylor (later president of the US). Immediately after the Black Hawk War, tin the Illinois and Michigan area, white settlers began coming to the mines.

Dubuque was laid out under an act of Congress approved on the 2nd of July 1836 and was incorporated in 1841

Dubuque is a Roman Catholic archiepiscopal see, and the seat of St Joseph’s College (1873), a small Roman Catholic institution; of Wartburg Seminary (1854), a small Evangelical Lutheran theological school; of the German Presbyterian Theological School of the Northwest (1852); of St Joseph’s Ladies’ Academy; and of Bayless Business College. Fifteen miles from Dubuque is a monastery of Trappist monks.

The city lies in a region of lead and zinc mines, quantities of zinc ore in the form of black-jack being taken from the latter.
