THE MIDWEST is known, because of its central placement, as America’s Heartland—the massive Great Lakes, the vast northern woods, wide-open plains full of wheat and corn—a figurative and literal patchwork of industrial cities and small towns… and one of America’s greatest cities: Chicago.
The Midwest is also known as America’s Heartland for its primary role in the nation’s manufacturing and farming sectors as well as its juxtaposition of big commercial cities and small towns that—in combination—are considered as the broadest representation of American culture; in fact, most national television broadcasters speak with a Midwestern accent.
The Midwest was the home of more than one quarter of U.S. Presidents (and that’s taking into account that a half dozen people were President before most the Midwest achieved statehood), as well as the birthplace of the inventors and entrepreneurs of most of the technology that fuels the world’s economy—examples including the airplane, automobile, electric lighting, the transistor, petroleum, and steel production.
