Semi-protected edit request on 4 April 2017[edit]

This article begins: "Ohio is and Eastern state..." It should begin: "Ohio is a Midwestern state..."

As a fifth generation native of Ohio I can assure you that Ohio is the eastern-most state in the Midwest. 47.19.252.66 (talk) 18:37, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

I agree that Ohio is generally considered a Midwestern state. Calling it "Eastern" introduces a contradiction with the article Midwestern United States, so I have made the change. Deli nk (talk) 19:30, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 29 July 2017[edit]

The original pronunciation of Ohio was "Oh-hee-yo" eventually altered by the French, as they had difficulties with the native dialect. (This information comes from a public library in Ohio logged in a diary book which was kept and updated by a European traveler who traveled to the Americas writing about his findings.)

Change Port Columbus International Airport to John Glenn Columbus International Airport Nick21r (talk) 21:23, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. — IVORK Discuss 22:51, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
I made the edit. The airport was renamed, and the article moved from Port Columbus International Airport to John Glenn Columbus International Airport more than a year ago. TJRC (talk) 01:07, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Historicity[edit]

Instead of referring to peoples who lived in post-Biblical times on the North American continent as "prehistoric," the more appropriate usage is "pre-contact." The surviving indigenous peoples most certainly have had an oral history for well beyond that long, and in many cases they have had forms of writing for at least as far back in time as Fort Ancient existed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.105.17.10 (talk) 12:35, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Date of admission to the Union: I am disputing this statement[edit]

This article says:

The current custom of Congress declaring an official date of statehood did not begin until 1812, with Louisiana's admission as the 18th state.

But on February 18, 1791, both houses of Congress passed an act stating that Vermont was to be admitted on March 4, 1791, specifying that date. In January and February 1791 the two houses passed an act saying Kentucky was to be admitted on June 1, 1792. Both acts specified a future date of admission.
