2. Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin. Wikipedia entry. "Soldiers Grove was first settled in 1856 by Joseph H. Brightman, who began a sawmill at the site to process logs rafted down the Kickapoo River. The village which sprang up near the sawmill was initially named "Pine Grove" because of the abundance of Eastern White Pine in the vicinity." (Submitted on June 7, 2010.)
