Antoine Laumet De La Mothe Cadillac, who founded Detroit, died in his native France on Oct 15, 1730, at the age of 72.
Shortly before the turn of the 18th Century , he convinced King Louis XIV to let him build a fort on the strait DeTroit between lakes Erie and Huron to protect French interests in the New World from the British. He was give $12000 in modern day dollars and began to buid the settlement on July 24th, 1701.
Cadillac's idea to get Detroit to grow was to attract the local indians, which he did by trading them alcohol for animal skins. Cadillac and his wife had 13 children. In 1710 Cadillac was relieved of his duties in Detroit and was made governor of Louisiana.
Congratulations to the Michigan State Spartans for a fantastic year. The Spartans were the Big Ten Champions and went to the Rose Bowl and defeated the Pac 12 Champs Stanford on New Years Day.
