I thought your gramps lived in the UP? This is something you should have known much about. When I lived up there (10 years ago ) People talked about this all the time.

He lived in Ironwood. Which technically is Michigan, but in reality it's Wisconsin.

Maybe he was so against the revolution of succeeding from Michigan that he never uttered a single word about it.

Maybe he was the leader but didn't want you to be upset with him for trying to succeed from the state you lived in that he convinced the whole UP and part of wisconsin to keep it a secret from you to salvage a good relationship with his grandson? Good gramps will do that you know.

Why is this surprising? Wouldn't we all distance ourselves from Detroit if we could?
