Hamilton Nelson Ross... Soldier's Rock (1907, one of a collection assembled by Hamilton Nelson Ross as research for his book, "La Pointe: Village Outpost"). From A Summer Place: Photographs from the Apostle Islands at the Wisconsin Historical Society. "...The Apostle Islands are the northernmost location in Wisconsin. Comprised of twenty-two islands, they are located just off the tip of the Bayfield Peninsula in the waters of western Lake Superior. Madeline Island is the largest of the islands and the only island with year-round residents. La Pointe, the only town on Madeline Island, is Wisconsin's oldest permanent settlement. The history of La Pointe is well documented in the book La Pointe: Village Outpost by Hamilton Nelson Ross."
