Who was Milton Pettit?

Milton H. Pettit was a Wisconsin politician. He was born in Fabius, New York in 1835, but moved to Somers, Wisconsin at the age of 11. As an adult, he became a member of the Republican Party and served on the city council of Kenosha, Wisconsin, and later served three terms as that city's mayor. He was elected to the Wisconsin State Senate in 1869, and in 1871 was elected the 11th Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin under Governor Cadwallader Washburn. Shortly after taking office in 1872, however, his health began to fail, and he died in the spring of 1873.
