Overview

Because of their similar linguistic, religious, and cultural backgrounds, English, Scottish, and Welsh immigrants are often regarded as the "invisible immigrants," assimilating into early American society easily and quickly and often losing their ethnic identities. Yet, of all of Ohio's immigrants, the British were the most influential in terms of shaping the state's politics and institutions. Also significant were their contributions to farming, mining, iron production, textiles, pottery, and engineering. Until British Buckeyes, historians have all but ignored and neglected these industrious settlers. Author William E. Van Vugt uses hundreds of biographies from county archives and histories, letters, Ohio and British census figures, and ship passenger lists to identify these immigrants and draw a portrait of their occupations, settlement patterns, and experiences and to underscore their role in Ohio history.

One night he snuck out of the camp and then wasnt seen for about 9 moons, he came back almost fully grown and completely matured. On his trip he had found out where he had came from and also how to battle on his own. He found out that his mother is a dragon and his father was a cat. By means of a mysterious power when the cat and the dragon bonded a part of the cat went into the dragon without mating. So then Dragonkit was born. From an egg, but the egg was lost and when Dragonkit hatched, he was alone. So he wandered into Ashclan camp. And then he was accepted. Now that he has returned he has been nammed Dragonfire. His new warrior name. He cannot turn into a dragon he just has some features of one. He may grow a little larger than an average cat but otherwise that is it. Now he is a healthy tom of Ashclan. <br>Sig: &Delta<_>DRAG&Theta<_>Nfire&Delta
