Michiganians, Unite!

Michigan joined the USA in 1837, and a good thing too. It’s made up of two large peninsulas, and has frontage on three of the Great Lakes. Michigan had the most shoreline of any state, up until 1959, when Alaska signed up.

Michigan is called the Wolverine State, not because of all the resident wolverines, but as a jeer from Ohioans who had some problem with Michiganders. Nobody seems quite sure that wolverines have ever been native to Michigan. They are the largest of the weasel family, and a belligerent bunch. Apparently, Michiganites liked the name, and kept it.

Michigan is very beautiful, and Rhinos prefer the Upper Peninsula, which is not as crowded as the Lower. More room to stroll around.
