Michigan was the terminus of the Underground Railroad
Advertisements [?]
And countless Michiganders risked their own lives to help escaped slaves get to Canada while the Fugitive Slave Laws were in place. I wonder what would've happened if they'd just said "Not our problem, deal with it yourselves?"

I thought we were one nation, not a bunch of independent country states. I hate how the rest of this country and people on this board are so anti-Michigan, anti-domestic auto industry, anti-union, and don't care about the millions who will lose their jobs if the auto company loans don't come through.
