Further, Kilbourn distributed maps of the area which only showed Kilbourntown, implying Juneautown did not exist or the river's east side was uninhabited and thus undesirable. Early that year it became known Juneau and Kilbourn intended to lay out competing town-sites and by the years' end both had purchased their lands from the government and made their first sales.

There were intense battles between the towns, mainly Juneautown and Kilbourntown, which culminated with the Milwaukee Bridge War of 1845.

Following the Bridge War, it was decided the best course of action was to officially unite the towns.

In the second half of the 18th century, the Native Americans living near Milwaukee played a role in all the major European wars on the American continent.

During the French and Indian War, a group of "Ojibwas and Pottawattamies from the far [Lake] Michigan" (i.e., the area from Milwaukee to Green Bay) joined the French-Canadian Daniel Liénard de Beaujeu at the Battle of the Monongahela.

In competition with Juneau, Byron Kilbourn established Kilbourntown west of the Milwaukee River and made sure the streets running toward the river did not join with those on the east side.

This accounts for the large number of angled bridges that still exist in Milwaukee today. He claimed land to the south of the Milwaukee River, along with Juneautown, where he built a log house in 1834. The first large wave of settlement to the areas that would later become Milwaukee County and the City of Milwaukee began in 1835.

Alexis Laframboise, in 1785, coming from Michilimackinac (now in Michigan) settled a trading post; therefore, he is the first European descent resident of the Milwaukee region.
