Because of its location, Ohio is rich with history. The wild, untamed land west of the Ohio River known as the Northwest Territory later played notable parts in the War of 1812, the Civil War and World War I and is the birthplace of five American presidents. Homesteaders and settlers were willing to fight for their land and the freedoms which this developing country offered. Walking through this area's cemeteries gives one a sense of this historical significance.
