On January 26, 1837, Michigan became the 26th state to join the Union. The state's capital was originally Detroit (known as the car capital of the world), but it was moved to Lansing in 1847. 

Michigan was first settled by the French in 1668, but the British took control following the French and Indian War. The British and the American colonists struggled for control over the land with the United States declaring it part of the Northwest Territory following the American Revolution and the British again taking control after the War of 1812.

American regained and maintained control of the territory in late 1813. Population grew rapidly after the Erie Canal opened in 1825.

Michigan is made up of two land masses, the Upper and Lower Peninsulas. The two areas are connected by the Mackinac Bridge, a five-mile-long suspension bridge.

The state is bordered by four of the five Great Lakes and is home to the Detroit Tigers baseball team and General Motors headquarters. Motown Records and the automobile industry both got their start in Michigan.
