Ohio i// is a state located in the Midwestern region of the United States of America. Part of the Great Lakes region, Ohio has long been a cultural and geographical crossroads in North America. At the time of European contact and in the years that followed, Native Americans in today's Ohio included the Iroquois, Miamis, and Wyandots. Beginning in the 1700s, the area was settled by people from New England, the Mid-Atlantic States, Appalachia, and the upper south.
Prior to 1984, the United States Census Bureau considered Ohio part of the North Central Region. That region was renamed "Midwest" and split into two divisions. Ohio is now in the East North Central States division. Ohio also has the highest population density of any state not on the Eastern Seaboard, and is the seventh-largest state by population in the U.S with 11,353,140 people. By area, Ohio is the 34th largest state.
Admitted in 1803, Ohio was the first state created under the Northwest Ordinance. Its U.S. postal abbreviation is OH; its old-style abbreviation was O. Natives of Ohio are known as Ohioans. (more...)
List of tallest buildings in Cleveland ranks skyscrapers in the U.S. city of Cleveland, Ohio by height. The tallest building in Cleveland is the 57-story Key Tower, which rises 948 feet (289 m) in Cleveland's Public Square. It is the tallest building in the state of Ohio and the 17th-tallest building in the United States. The Terminal Tower stands as the second tallest building in the city and the state.
The history of skyscrapers in Cleveland began in 1889 with the construction of the Society for Savings Building, often regarded as the first skyscraper in the city. Cleveland went through an early building boom in the late 1920s and early 1930s, during which several high-rise buildings, including the Terminal Tower, were constructed. The city experienced a second, much larger building boom that lasted from the early 1970s to early 1990s, during which time it saw the construction of over 15 skyscrapers, including the Key Tower. Cleveland is the site of 4 skyscrapers that rise at least 500 feet (152 m) in height. Overall, the skyline of Cleveland is ranked (based upon existing and under construction buildings over 500 feet (152 m) tall) 5th in the Midwestern United States (after Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit and Columbus) and 20th in the United States.
Unlike many other major American cities, Cleveland has been the site of relatively few skyscraper construction projects in recent years. The most recently completed skyscraper in the city is the Carl B. Stokes Federal Court House Building, which was constructed in 2003 and rises 430 feet (131 m). As of June 2008, there are nine high-rise buildings proposed for construction in the city; none are approved or under construction.

Who would ever have thought that a butcher boy from Youngstown, Ohio, would end up with twenty-four million smackers in his pocket?
George Brinton McClellan was a major general during the American Civil War. He organized the famous Army of the Potomac and served briefly (November 1861 to March 1862) as the general-in-chief of the Union Army. Early in the war, McClellan played an important role in raising a well-trained and organized army for the Union. Although McClellan was meticulous in his planning and preparations, these attributes may have hampered his ability to challenge aggressive opponents in a fast-moving battlefield environment. He chronically overestimated the strength of enemy units and was reluctant to apply principles of mass, frequently leaving large portions of his army unengaged at decisive points.
McClellan's Peninsula Campaign in 1862 ended in failure, with retreats from attacks by General Robert E. Lee's smaller Army of Virginia and an unfulfilled plan to seize the Confederate capital of Richmond. His performance at the bloody Battle of Antietam blunted Lee's invasion of Maryland, but allowed Lee to eke out a precarious tactical draw and avoid destruction, despite being outnumbered. As a result, McClellan's leadership skills during battles were questioned by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, who eventually removed him from command, first as general-in-chief, then from the Army of the Potomac. Lincoln offered this famous evaluation of McClellan: "If he can't fight himself, he excels in making others ready to fight." Indeed, McClellan was the most popular of that army's commanders with its soldiers, who felt that he had their morale and well-being as paramount concerns.
