Happy 210th Statehood Day to Ohio!
The Act of April 30, 1802 (“Ohio Enabling Act”), 2 STAT 173, “enabling the people of the Eastern Division of the territory northwest of the river Ohio to form a Constitution and State government and for the admission of such state into the Union.”
Ohio was admitted to the Union on March 1, 1803, becoming the 17th state, and the first admitted under the Northwest Ordinance.
We are partial to to any of the Berryman cartoons, but “Ohio, the Mother of Presidents” (306104) is one of our favorites! What do you think?
