Chapters are organized chronologically or by theme, such as the pioneer era, immigration, antislavery and the Civil War, the lumber and mining industries, women’s rights and progressivism, the auto industry, the unionization of Michigan workers, World War II, civil rights, economic decline, the environment and health, and Michigan’s infrastructure.
