Michigan Overview

The state of Michigan is located in the Midwest of the United States and belongs to the northeast central states. Michigan borders Canada (with the province of Ontario) to the north and east (border along Lakes Superior and Huron); with the states of Minnesota to the northwest (Lake Superior border), Wisconsin to the west, Illinois to the southwest (Lake Michigan border), Indiana to the southwest, and Ohio to the southeast.

Michigan is the largest state east of the Mississippi River, it occupies two peninsulas (Upper and Lower) and many islands. The “Great Lakes State” is surrounded by four of them: Erie, Huron, Michigan and Upper. Michigan is located on the territory of two physiographic regions of the USA: its northwest (the western part of the Upper Peninsula) is low hills and plateaus, part of the Laurentian Upland; the rest of the area, which is characterized by relatively flat relief, is part of the Interior Plains.

Michigan has a humid continental climate, which is significantly influenced by the vast water surfaces of the Great Lakes. In the south and central parts of the Lower Peninsula, the climate is relatively warm, with hot summers and cold winters. In the north of the Lower and Upper Peninsulas of Michigan, the climate is more severe, with warm but short summers and long, cold winters. Michigan often experiences heavy snowfalls and blizzards.

The name Michigan comes from the Ojibwe word mishigami, which means “big water” or “big lake”.

The first European explorer on the lands of modern Michigan was in 1622 the Frenchman Etienne Brule. The first permanent settlement in Michigan (Mission Sault Ste. Marie on the Upper Peninsula) was founded by the French missionary and eminent pioneer Jacques Marquette in 1668. In the following decades, several more trading posts and forts were established here, including the construction of Fort Detroit on the Lower Peninsula in 1701, from which the state’s largest city grew.

In 1763, after the end of the French and Indian War, Michigan, like the rest of the French North American colonies east of the Mississippi River, came under British crown control (becoming part of the province of Quebec). After the American Revolution and the American Revolutionary War, Great Britain retained its presence in Michigan (which was formally part of the US Northwest Territory created in 1787), transferring Detroit to the Americans only in 1796. Finally, the issue of the border between the United States and British Canada in the region of the Upper Peninsula and the islands located on the Great Lakes was resolved only in the 19th century.

In 1800, the Michigan lands became part of the Indiana Territory, and in 1805 the Michigan Territory was created. During the Anglo-American War of 1812–15 Michigan was recaptured by the British, the United States retook Detroit in 1813 after winning the “Battle of Lake Erie”.

In 1837 Michigan became the twenty-sixth state of the United States.

Michigan’s largest city, Detroit, now has about 670,000 people (and about 4,320,000 people in the metropolitan area that has grown up around it). The state capital, Lansing, has about 120,000 residents.

Michigan has been the center of the US auto industry for decades, and Detroit is known as the “Motor City”. Despite the significant decline in industrial production over the past decades and the diversification of the state’s economy, automobile production continues to be one of its most important areas. In addition, other industries are well developed in Michigan, including chemical, aerospace, engineering, and food processing. Agriculture is well developed in the state, both animal husbandry (mainly dairy) and agriculture. Tourism has been a traditionally important sector of the economy of the Great Lakes State.
