      Where did the term Michigander come from??

      Some historical accounts suggest that Michigander was created by combining the word “Michigan” and “gander,” which means a male goose. The first use of the word is often credited to former President Abraham Lincoln. While he was in the U.S. House of Representatives, Lincoln used the word in an 1848 speech criticizing Senator Lewis Cass. He sarcastically referred to Cass, the first governor of the Michigan Territory, as “the great Michigander.”
