Overview

It Happened in Ohio: Remarkable Events that Shaped History by Carol Cartaino

For a small state, Ohio has had a big impact on America. This agricultural, political, and industrial power has long been known for the vigor, earnestness, and imagination of its citizens. It Happened in Ohio goes behind the scenes to tell its story, in short episodes that reveal the intriguing people and events that have shaped the Buckeye State.

Read about one woman's desperate flight for freedom with her son one night in 1838 over the ice of the Ohio River-the real-life story behind Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Hear Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall say "I do" at storied Malabar Farm.

Remember the Cuyahoga River fire of 1969, and that fateful day in May 1970 that marked the Kent State catastrophe.

Relive the Cincinnati Reds' victory over the New York Yankees in the 1976 World Series, and revisit the long, proud history of the Big Red Machine.
