LANSING, Mich. — In our Michigan History Throwback Segments we aim to share things about Michigan History that you may not have known.

This week we had the opportunity to speak with Valerie Marvin, Historian & Curator for the Michigan State Capitol and we are continuing our in depth look at some of the portraits that you may see when you visit our State Capitol.

This is a timely discussion as recently we announced the start of aportrait for former Governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder.

Today we are exploring the most unique portrait in the Gallery of Governors, the portrait of John Swainson, 42nd Governor of Michigan.

If you missed any of our past Michigan History Throwback segments you can find them on the FOX 47 Website.
