Michigan

State

Michigan is known by its close to 10 million residents as the Great Lakes State or the Wolverine State. Annexed into the union as the 26th state on Jan. 26, 1837, Michigan is the only state to feature two penisulas and boasts the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world - bordering four of the five Great Lakes.

Although Detroit is the state's largest city, Lansing is its capital.
