Detroit, Michigan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (5403 words)
In 1796 Detroit and its surrounding areas passed to the United States, and from 1805 to 1847 the town was the territorial and state capitol of Michigan.
Detroit's population increased more than sixfold during the first half of the 20th century, thanks largely to a massive influx of Eastern European and Southern migrants—both white and fl—who came to the area for the burgeoning automobile industry jobs.
Detroit was also the former home of a round of the Formula One World Championship, holding a race on the streets of downtown Detroit from 1982 until 1987, after which the sanction moved from Formula One to Indycars.
