Detroit

Saturday , 29, August 2009

I saw a French world map at a friends place which described the strait between Greenland and Iceland as ‘Détroit de Danemark’. This would mean that the US town Detroit was originally French. Searching on wikipedia gave a positive response. It was originally founded by the Frenchman Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac in 1701. As a little side note I found that the Cadillac car was named after him.
