On this day in 1788, Julien Dubuque gets permission for mining:

…Julien Dubuque, a French trapper from Quebec, was granted permission by a council of Sauk and Fox Indians of the area to work the lead mines.

Dubuque had the most success in what is now the area of Dubuque, Iowa. [Source: Iowa History Project]
