The Society of the War of 1812 in the State of Ohio

Organized January 8, 1895

The Changing Face of Early Ohio

The Forces of Change in Ohio

The Old Northwest Territory evolved into existence just prior to the events which eventually lead into the War of 1812. Not only is our state a creation of the forces of political expansion, but the territory and eventual statehood was carved from conflict and its geologic position in the Great Lakes.
