An illustration depicts a scene from Shakespeare's Coriolanus, a play that opens with citizens armed with "staves, clubs, and other weapons" in protest against the city fathers they accuse of hoarding grain. In Shakespeare's day, food shortages tore through England — and the bard himself was fined for grain hoarding.

Wade House - Stagecoach Inn - 7 miles west of Plymouth, just off WI-23 in Greenbush - In 1844 Sylvanus & Betsey Wade & their family settled in what was to become Greenbush. At that time Wisconsin was a frontier territory. By 1848 Wade's "Half Way House" was a regular stop for the stagecoach lines operating between Sheboygan & Fond du Lac. The inn was the scene of cotillions, business meetings, political caucuses & circuit court sessions. Fascinating museum!
