U.S. #1000 commemorates the 250th anniversary of the landing of Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac in what is now present-day Detroit. It became a key location for France in the New World, and a trading center on the edges of the American frontier. The stamp pictures Cadillac’s landing, with an image of the 1951 skyline of the City of Detroit in the background.
 
 
Detroit Settlement Founded
 To prevent British expansion in the West and protect French interests, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac was sent to establish a stronghold on the Detroit River. On June 4, 1701, Cadillac set sail from Montreal with 100 men. On July 24, 1701, the group selected a spot with steep riverbanks overlooking a narrow strait. 
 
The strategic location was ideal for the defense of the settlement, and the waterway supplied a shipping route for trade. Fort Ponchartrain du Detroit was erected on the spot. Cadillac served as the commander of the fort until 1710. Detroit was the capital of Michigan from 1805-47 and is the largest city in the state today.
