Michigan's Only Self-Proclaimed King, Still Stirring Things Up by Red Tape Blog
Red Tape Blog writes: James Strang, Michigan's only self-proclaimed king, is stirring things up, 150 years after his assassination on Beaver Island.
The latest dilemma focuses on an historical marker that used to stand in Charlevoix's Bridge Park commemorating Strang's "Mormon Kingdom."
The city quietly removed it in the early 1990s and stuck it in storage after a complaint about its language. The Michigan Historical Commission discovered just last year that it was no longer on display.
