Columbus Ohio

INTRODUCTION

COLUMBUS FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION

Columbus is a great city to celebrate Independance Day. Columbus has a celebration that is usually held the day before most suburbs celebrate so that you can celebrate two times. Their celebration is called {{Red White and Boom}}. The parade is ok, it's not outstanding by any means. What you won't want to miss is the fireworks. The fireworks are set to music and you can bring your radio with you to listen while the fireworks are set off.

HISTORY

When European explorers traveled this area they found the Miami, Delaware, Wyandot, Shawnee, and Mingo nations living here. This resulted in a battle for the land which fell to the settlers after the battle of Fallen Timbers.

After much fighting, Columbus was named capital in 1812 as a compromise in the center of the state although it was mostly forest at the time. The city had an economic boom after the War of 1812, but soon set into a recession along with an outbreak of Cholera in 1833. The population replenished when the National Road linked the city to the Ohio and Eerie Canal in 1831.

During the Civil War, Camp Chase was a major station for the Union Army. At the end of the 19th century there was a major increase in industrial activity as well as worker organization. In 1913 a major flood devastated the downtown area resulting in construction of major buildings in the 1920s.
