The legend of Mackinac Bridge is as follows:

The Legend of The Mackinac Bridge
Michigan lost its bid to acquire a seven mile strip of land that included Toledo when in 1837 President Andrew Jackson signed a bill to give the disputed land to Ohio, and instead give Michigan the land lying north of the Straits of Mackinac. Despite great financial and physical problems, the Mackinac Bridge opened November, 1957.

As aptly stated by the Detroit News in this link: “The Mackinac Bridge is more than a gigantic physical structure, more than a mighty engineering feat, more than a link in the nation’s new system of modern highways. The Mackinac Bridge is the manifestation, in steel and concrete, of the spirit of Michigan -- a spirit adventurous, unafraid, respectful of the past but eager to meet the future, the spirit of a people for whom no task is too difficult, no job too big.”
