How will you celebrate? On April 10, 1933, Michigan became the first state to ratify the 21st Amendment, which repealed the prohibition of alcohol. http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/2012/04/today_in_michigan_history_a_th.html

Historians estimate 75 percent of the alcohol consumed in the U.S. during Prohibition came through Detroit.

Michigan was  the 16th state to ratify the 18th Ammendment.

Fairly early in, first out.

An uncle by marriage was a bootlegger running whisky across the Detroit River.  I remember that he got caught and did some time for that.

I have no idea what your amendments are but if you can make beer and you were the first than I'm pro-Michigan. 

1st - free speech
2nd- was that the gun one?
After that I have no idea.

You're not required to know.  I think you're ahead of most Americans anyway ::)

1st has more stuff to it than that, including freedom of religion and freedom of the press.

You might want to know the 5th though, in case you ever get in trouble when traveling in the US ;)

sorta, that's the Miranda Warning.

kind of a catch all, for right to a jury trial and private property.
