The city of Oshkosh is named for Menominee Chief Oshkosh, whose name meant "claw." In the 1800s, the growth of Oshkosh was due mostly to the growth of its lumber industry thanks to its navigable waterways that provided access to distribution markets and pineries in the northern region. The city is best known for the OshKosh B'Gosh children's clothing company.
