1825 · The Crimes Act

The Crimes Act was made to provide a clearer punishment of certain crimes against the United States. Part of it includes: Changing the maximum sentence of imprisonment to be increased from seven to ten years and changing the maximum fine from $5,000 to $10,000.

1836 · The Bridge War

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.
