Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, December 14, 2014 - 02:57 pm:

I'll be writing a follow up on this later, but we ran into a problem this morning with our "Day in History" when it was posted on Facebook. It has to do with their policy about "ads" that have text covering more than 20% of the area. Of course, the text in this picture is the significant content, being the title page of the book published by delegates to the "Frostbitten Convention".

We have put in an inquiry with Facebook, which is blocking it from appearing on pages where we routinely promote the content of our Day in History, because we think other Michigan History lovers would find it interesting. On this day in 1836 the authorized delegates (at an un-authorized convention) accepted the U.P. in exchange for the Toledo Strip, clearing the way for Michigan's official Statehood.

Traveling north this afternoon, from Petoskey to Marquette, and will post a follow-up later when I hear back from Facebook as to why they would block this particular image.

Thanks Charlie ~ hope you had smooth sailing back to Marquette!

Greetings Charlie:

Another option is to consider leaving FaceBook all together. Especially if the FaceBook reply is for you to reread the FaceBook User Agreement.

Merry Christmas and best wishes in 2015.

Safe road trip as well.

It might be important to note that only the western part of the UP was taken from the Wisconsin Territory and attached to Michigan in exchange for the Toledo Strip. The Eastern part of the UP (east of a line roughly from Escanaba to Marquette) was already part of the Michigan Territory.
