In the past Michigan has had a lot of history, so make your mind prepared for all of this history.In 1820 Michigan was only home to 9,000 people. But, by the time of 1890 Michigan had 2.1 million people. Over 70 years Michigan grew 230 times bigger! The other thing I wanted to share with you is the Race Rebellion in 1967. The Race Rebellion was a fight between the African americans and the Americans.The Africans Americans were mad at the Americans because they had no equal rights. This Rebellion lasted a week in Detroit. I hope you have learned a lot about Michigan's history.

Michigan is made up of two large peninsulas. A peninsula is a piece of land surrounded by more than two side of water, but still attached to the mainland.
