Midwest

Posted by Don on January 30, 2001

Where and how did the phrase orginate. I live in Seattle, but grew up in the Chicago/Michgan area. It has always been referred to as the midwest. People here look at me as I'm crazy when I say that.

It's east of the Mississippi so why is it called the midwest??
