Ecorse, Michigan: A Brief History

ISBN
9781540220714
Ecorse, the oldest downriver community, was the site of many critical battles from the French and Indian War through the War of 1812 as French and English settlers forged new homes in the Michigan wilderness. By 1827, the scattering of settlers had developed into a small community, and the township of Ecorse was formed. During the Prohibition era, the peaceful riverfront was transformed into hideouts for rumrunners and other nefarious lawbreakers. From a prosperous shipbuilding industry to a championship rowing club and the Detroit River runs made by the Bob-Lo boats, Ecorse's maritime history is one that continues to engage residents and impel the community forward.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Kathy Covert WarnesPublisher: History Press Library EditionsPublished: 08/01/2009ISBN: 9781540220714Pages: 162Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 9.00h x 6.00w x 0.44d
