That was interesting. I lived in MI for years and never realized this had ever happened.

LOL....

Some of us downsaters wonder if winning that piece of land was really a good thing.

Of course now we can claim a certain brewbabe as our own, so I guess that's not all bad!

Ive mentioned this for years and I've only found one history professor to acknowledge it.

I usually get a weird look, and utter disbelief.

Same thing happened when mentioning the Toledo War (territory fight for the Toledo strip). Happy to see that one mentioned in there too.

This brings back memories of History teachers and professors being dismissive when questioned and not researching on their own if they didn't read it in a textbook. lovely public schools. haha
