    World Events (7)

    1847 · Moving the State Capital
    Age 7
    The capital of Michigan was moved from Detroit to Lansing on March 17, 1847. The capital was moved to be further away from Canada, to encourage settlement and boost economy toward the inner regions of the state, and to make to capital more accessible to everyone statewide.
    1848 · State Capital Moves to Lansing
    Age 8
    Detroit fought to maintain the Capitol within its jurisdiction, but communities in the growing western part of the state had reasons for wanting a move inland. This move would make the Capitol more easily defensible in case of another war between the British and the U.S. like that of the War of 1812. Proponents of moving the capitol also sought to make the government more accessible to the people throughout the state. Construction began in 1847 on a temporary state capitol building in Lansing. It was a simple two-story wood frame structure, painted white with green wooden shutters and topped by a tin cupola. The building was sold when the permanent capitol building opened in 1879 and, like the first capitol, it was later destroyed by a fire in 1882.
    1854 · Creation of the Republican Party
    Age 14
    A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.

    Name Meaning

    English: patronymic from Fellow, from Middle English felau(e) ‘partner, co-worker, companion’ (late Old English fēolaga, from Old Norse félagi, which is composed of ‘fee, money’ + legja ‘to lay, place, put’). In Middle English the term was used in the general sense of a companion or comrade, and the surname thus probably denoted a (fellow) member of a trade guild. Compare Fear 1.
