Michigan was the twenty-sixth state to enter into the union, on Jan. 26, 1837. It is known for its interesting geographical location, bordering four of the five Great Lakes (it does not border Lake Ontario). It also comprises two parts, the Upper Peninsula (known as the U.P.) and the Lower Peninsula (which is by far the larger of the two). The two are separated by water. Its capital is Lansing, and its largest city is Detroit.

Though traditionally controlled by Democrats, with disastrous economic results, Michigan stunned the liberal media by voting for Donald Trump for president in 2016. In the final days of the campaign Democrat leaders rushed to Michigan to try unsuccessfully to keep it from switching to the Republican side. They elected a Democratic Governor in 2018 however.

While it was a territory, Michigan's militia fought the Toledo War with Ohio's militia. This border dispute delayed recognition of Michigan as a state, and the dispute was settled as a condition of Michigan attaining statehood.

The state Constitution of Michigan, like all of the other 50 states, acknowledges God or our Creator or the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe. It says:

We, the people of the State of Michigan, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of freedom, and earnestly desiring to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution.
