Just read the article.  Maybe I should have done that first but I wanted to show how all that college learning paid off.   ;)

The 'history' is truly next door (south side of the Maumee River at Maumee, Ohio.  However, the group mapping out the history is from Monroe County.  The 'forts' at Fort Meigs definitely are tied to the events at the River Raisin massacre and the War of 1812.

2017 American-Made Index: The People Behind the Jeep Plant
« Reply #108 on: October 22, 2017, 09:35:28 AM »

Always nice to see the people that get their hands dirty get some very deserved recognition for the work they do...   especially when it's 'local' people!

I had to stop and think hard for a few minutes to figure out where to post this.  I decided that since Jeep has certainly been a major part of our local history next door that this was the best place to post it.

It's a lot about people too.  10 extra MT points if anyone recognizes any of the people in any of the photos!

That tattooed blonde looks familiar, but I could be confusing it with a porn movie.

We've had some discussion on the old salt mines under Detroit (Downriver actually).  Here's a video with some more details.
