What is the only Great Lake located entirely in the U.S.?



Lake Michigan




Lake Michigan may not be the largest of the Great Lakes – looking at you, Superior and Huron – but it’s the only one that’s located entirely in the United States. That gives it more citizenship than the rest, don’t you think? It touches its “home” state, Michigan, as well as Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. Its name is derived from the Ojibwa Indian word mishigami, which means “large lake,” so it still makes quite the impression. Source: Live Science
