Michigan's 175th Birthday

On January 26th, 1837, President Andrew Jackson signed Michigan into statehood; today marks Michigan's 175th year, and although it has seen good and bad, the state's beauty and the resilience of hard-working Michiganders makes me proud to call the state home.  


Nickname: Wolverine StateGreat Lakes State, Mitten State
Bird: American Robin
Flower: Apple Blossom
Tree: White Pine
Motto: Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam circumspice ("If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you")

Happy Birthday, Michigan!
