Detroit: Pre-statehood Descriptions

"I Arrived at Detroit..." celebrates the three hundredth anniversary of Detroit's founding by bringing to the Web over one hundred first-hand accounts of individuals who visited Detroit between 1701 and 1837. The individuals who wrote these accounts left a surprisingly detailed and vibrant record of what they saw and experienced. They show that even in this early period Detroit was a most interesting place.
