Brief Information About Detroit

Detroit is the largest city in Michigan. It is situated in the southeast part of the state on the bank of River Detroit.

Detroit is the oldest city of the seaboard colonies and was founded by Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac on July 24, 1701. The French were the first settlers, and they gave the city its name from their word meaning “strait,” referring to Detroit River connecting Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair. The river forms part of the international boundary. It marks the only point where Canada lies directly south of U.S. territory.

Detroit was fought over by the French, the British, and the Indians during the French and Indian Wars because of its strategic location. During the American Revolutionary War it was the headquarters for the British forces in the Northwest Territory. Detroit was one of the main terminus for most of its voyages from Buffalo.

It is a major exporting center because of its link to all the important cities on the Great Lakes. The first steam vessel which appreared here in 1818 was named the "Walk-in-the-Water".
