Just what is the Lost Peninsula?
Don Faber tells us it’s a little strip of land in the very southeast corner of Michigan.
And here’s the kicker: The only way to access it is through Toledo.
Faber tells us that when Michigan and Ohio were still young states, they each performed a geographical survey to determine their boundaries.
Ohio’s survey placed Toledo in Ohio. Michigan’s placed it, well, in Michigan.
What followed was the Toledo War, a short conflict that ended in military stalemate.
