Sorry to drop the story
right here. Hope you find what you have read already to be
informative. As I did research on these items, I learned a
lot of things.
I was quite surprised at a
number of things:
- Ohio had been at, just above or
just below the equator numerous times in the ancient
past. This was caused by the shifting of the Earth's
north and south poles. Ponder that for a minute...
- Ohio was actually hit by more
than one ice age. Makes you wonder if an outside
influence such as super volcano or huge meteor had
something to do with it.
- The glaciers traveled as rivers
of ice with their path influenced by the topography of
the earth, mountains, etc. So not all areas were
- A huge amount of topsoil and
such was carried from Canada to Ohio. Can they grow
crops in Canada?
- The Indians as we think of them
were NOT the first residents of Ohio. There were several
prehistoric peoples first. In fact the red man pushed
the last of these people out of Ohio.
- And where did the red men come
from? Across a land bridge from Asia? Or from South
- The Mound people were in many
ways a far more advanced people than the red man.
- There is no history of the red
man until the white man showed up.
- The Iroquois Nations were
friendly to the British before the French and Indian
Wars due to an incident involving a Frenchman, de
LaSalle, and some Hurons who attacked and killed some
Iroquois long before the actual war.
- The French and Indian War was
only small part of the overall conflict. In fact this
whole conflict between the French and British has been
referred to as the first world war. And this conflict
went on for over 70 years.
I will be working on
adding more pages. It takes time to research information
then write it on these pages. Have patience. The sign of a
good website is that it keeps changing drawing visitors
This is a labor of love.
(Especially since it doesn't make any money.) History is
fascinating. How did we get where we are today? What
influences will that have on where we are going? This world
is built on the shoulders of those that came before us. You
cannot understand many world situations without knowing how
they got there in the first place.
This section will go up to
about when Ohio became a State in the Union, 1803. Those
details will be in an other section of this History part of
