    Whats the deal with the u.p? Why is part of michigan? It has more of a border with wisconsin. It's bigger then other states, so why isnt it its own state?

    Read your history. Before Michigan became a state, we fought a war with Ohio over Toledo. The survey that gave it to Ohio was wrong and it was supposed to be part of Michigan.

    The US Gov forced the case to be dropped if Michigan wanted to be a state. And gave the UP to Michigan in exchange for the Toledo strip.
