Re: 1902: "State Borders"

I dunno... if they give the Upper Peninsula to Wisconsin, Michigan for sure is gonna come back after the Toledo Strip in Ohio. Which admittedly was probably theirs in the first place. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo_War

Maybe they can fix the algae problem there; Ohio sure can't seem to.
