密西根于1837年添加联邦,成为美国第26州。因为它的边境与五大湖中的四湖相接,故又名大湖州(Great Lakes State)。密西根一字源自于欧及布威族(Ojibwa,Chippewa帕契瓦族)印地安字,意即大湖。密西根州拥有独特的地理景致,因为它是由两块巨大土地所组成,一为人烟稀少的上半岛(Upper Peninsula),另一则为形如连指手套且住有多数居民的下半岛(Lower Peninsula)底特律市(Detroit)密西根州的第一大城市,也是世界闻名的美国汽车工业中心。本州的州花是孤挺花;州鸟是知更鸟;首府则是兰辛(Lansing)


Michigan was the 26th state, admitted into the Union in 1837. Called the "Great Lakes State" because its shores touch four of the five Great Lakes, Michigan gets its name from an Ojibwa (Chippewa) Indian word meaning "large lake." Michigan has an unusual geography, as it consists of two land masses--the sparsely populated Upper Peninsula and the mitten-shaped Lower Peninsula, home to most of the state's residents. Detroit, its largest city, is known worldwide as the center of the American auto industry. The apple blossom is the state flower, the robin is the state bird and Lansing is the capital.
