People have lived in Ohio for at least 13,000 years!




’s widely believed that the Americas were initially populated by a group called the Paleo-Indians.

They first came to North America sometime between 15-13,000 BC from the far east of modern-day Russia into the westernmost tip of Alaska via the Bering Strait.

Over the following centuries and millennia, they spread out over the Americas, eventually settling across the continent.

These early explorers were hunter-gatherers, and all we know of their existence comes from the archaeological evidence we dig up today.

The earliest such evidence of human existence in the region we now call Ohio comes from unearthed spear tips that date back as early as 13,000 BC.

Ohio became the 17th state in 1803. The Ohio and Lake Erie Canal opened almost 30 years later and connected Lake Erie with the Ohio River. That made it much less expensive to ship goods from the east, so more settlers started arriving in the state.

Most people from Ohio fought for the Union during the Civil War. Those who were against the war and refused to fight were called Copperheads because they were thought of as poisonous snakes lying in wait to attack in favor of the south.
