Tuebor Society

In the 1830s, when Michigan adopted the motto ("I will defend"), the War of 1812 and potential of armed conflict was still in people's minds. Added to that was our struggle to attain statehood and our boundary dispute with Ohio over the Toledo Strip. Today, members of the Tuebor Society defend, protect and share all of Michigan's stories as they help children and adults find inspiration in our state's rich heritage.
