World Events (8)

1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 2

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.
1836 · The Bridge War

Age 8

On Halloween, tension between Cleveland and Ohio City began to boil over. Both sides of the river armed themselves with muskets and a cannon over the Columbus Street Bridge. These tensions were brought about because the bridge's location was diverting commercial attention away from Ohio City completely and the way that their concerns were being treated. Cleveland's mayor tried to reason with the enraged citizens but was greeted with a volley of rocks. No deaths were recorded but three men were injured.
1860 · Perry Monument on Public Square

Age 32

The Perry Monument was erected at the center of Public Square to commemorate the victory of the Battle of Lake Erie by Oliver Hazard Perry. It was Ohio's first monumental sculpture. It has since been moved to Fort Huntington Park.
