The state consists of two peninsula, the Upper and Lower
Peninsula, which since 1957 have been linked by a bridge over the
Mackinac Strait between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The majority
of the population lives in the cities of the southeastern Peninsula
with the metropolitan Detroit - Ann Arbor - Flint (a total of 5.3
million homes). The cities form an unified industrial region,
starting in the 1800s. became especially important after the
founding of Ford Motor Co. (1903), General Motors (1908)
and Chrysler (1924). The three groups, The Big Three, along
with countless subcontractors, has had a major impact on the state's
economy, as have the ups and downs of the automotive industry
affecting employment and migration flows. The last major wave of
immigration, consisting mainly of blacks from the southern states,
arrived during and after World War II, while the car crisis of the
decade from the late 1970s created high unemployment and major
social problems. Regardless of factory closures, however, Michigan
remains the United States' largest automaker and among the leaders
in, among other things. machinery, textiles, furniture, plastics,
rubber, food and chemical products.
Forests cover almost half of the acreage, and the Upper Peninsula
in particular has a large forest, while most farms are found on the
former grasslands near the borders of Indiana and Ohio to the south.
Except for the western part of the Upper Peninsula with a. Mount
Arvon (604 m) is the landscape predominantly a small hillside
lowland with moraine deposits from the last ice age. The climate is
temperate and rainy, but due to the Great Lakes it is less
continental than neighboring states. Well-known tourist destinations
are the Isle Royale of Lake Superior and the coastal dunes of
Sleeping Bear Dunes at Lake Michigan.
Michigan was originally inhabited by various, preferably
Algonquin, Native American tribes. French fur traders and
missionaries penetrated in the 1600s. entered the area and brought
Sault Sainte Marie in 1668 and Detroit in 1701. In 1763 the area was
surrendered to Britain, and the British first escaped it in 1796,
though it fell to the United States at Paris Peace in 1783 and
formally joined the Northwest Territory from 1787. In 1805, Michigan
was separated as independent territory, but it was only after the
American-English War 1812-14 and especially after the opening of the
Erie Canal in 1825 that the American relocation took off. After the
separation of the territory of Wisconsin, Michigan with the
peninsula north of Lake Michigan in 1837 was admitted as a state of
the United States; The peninsula's deposits of iron and copper ore
laid the groundwork for industrial development in the second half of
the 1800s, when immigration took place from Poland and Italy in
particular, but also from the Netherlands, Germany and Ireland.
