Toledo War: Michigan and Ohio's First Rivalry
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Historian Alan Naldrett will introduce attendees to the major people and events of the Toledo War (1835-36), including Major Stickney, who named his sons One and Two and his daughters Indiana and Florida.  He will also discuss how the actual fighting was thwarted by Ohio's Great Black Swamp, when the militias formed by Michigan and Ohio to battle for the town of Toledo both got lost and never engaged in battle.  Somehow, Michigan persevered, traded Toledo for the Upper Peninsula and finally became a state in 1837.
