Ohio, as we know, is the bustling city. But do you know that Ohio had a pre-historic settlement for thousands and thousands of years by Paleo-Indian people, far from today’s burgeoning city of tasteful homes. Their primary occupation was hunting animals as per the carvings and fossils discovered of that time. They used to hunt many large animals by using stone tools. With the changing time, the evolved race of Native American was able to make earthen monuments. These earthen monuments were used as burial tomb for dead. Even today you can find them in the country side of Ohio.

From the middle of the 18th Century, many fur traders from England and France started trading with Native Americans. After American Revolutionary War, the modern day of Ohio was settled by migrants from New England, Pennsylvania, and New York. While; Yankees settled in the Western part supported the modernization and end of slavery and took part with the Union in the Civil War, though Copperhead sentiments were prevalent in Southern part of the state.

Ohio has its generous share in the arena of politics. Ohio is the native state of eight American Presidents. After the Civil War, Ohio developed rapidly with the boon of industrialization and manufacturing. The state is located at the strategic point of both Northern and Southern crossroads. It had its share of upheavals from the era of Greta Depression, Ku Klux Klan to modern times.
