Happy Birthday Michigan!

175 years ago today, Michigan became the 26th state of the Union.  As this article points out, we nearly had to go to war with Ohio (totally unjustified, in my view, as who wants Toledo?), but we did it despite their opposition.  In those 175 years, we’ve made some of the most vital contributions to our nation’s history, namely in the arena of manufacturing.  I think that Michigan will continue to do so in the centuries to come, and I, for one, am proud to call myself a Michigander.
