Happy Birthday Michigan


Michigan turns 170 on Friday, January 26th. It was on that date in 1837 that Michigan joined the Union as the nation's 26th state. Join in the birthday celebration at the Michigan Historical Museum in Lansing on Saturday, Jan. 27, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hands-on activities, exhibits and even birthday cake for the first 100 visitors. In what city was the Frostbitten Convention held that paved the way for Michigan's admission to the Union?


This Michigan historical marker provides the answer
December 14, 2006 this city had a high of 50 degrees and a low of 30 degrees. The "Frostbitten" element would certainly apply today however.
