#775 - 3¢ Michigan Cent.: Plate Block

The 26th state to be admitted to the Union, Michigan's entrance was delayed pending the resolution of a territorial dispute with Ohio. Known as the "Toledo War", both states claimed a small strip of land in what is now northern Ohio. The dispute was largely bloodless and, even though militias from the two states maneuvered in the area, all-out war was avoided. Scott 775 Michigan Centenary
