    1848 · State Capital Moves to Lansing
    Age 14
    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.
    1858 · Halle Orchestra Give First Performance
    Age 24
    The Hallé Orchestra named after Charles Hallé became a permanent orchestra when they played for the first time on January 30, 1858, in the Free Trade Hall. The orchestra fell on hard times in 1861 and performed only two concerts. From 1899-1911 Hans Richter directed the orchestra.
