Love for the Land
This souvenir from United States serves as a fine symbol of Ohio as being a land of accomplishment and agricultural development. Of course, this is the seal of the state, but its black and white nature makes it seem more casual and decorative, rather than a patriotic statement.
The sun looks to be like a beacon of hope and power. With its considerable size it really does appear to reign over the land, which is sure to ring true to many Ohioans that make their living directly from the land in this part of America. And like the seal suggests, many people grow wheat in bountiful quantities.
Ohio in Details
The territory of Ohio has been populated for thousands of years. Firstly, nomadic tribes wandered in this territory until a sedentary culture called Adena took over. As early as the 1,000 BC, these people lived in villages and did some agriculture. Later on, the territory was dominated by Iroquois who controlled other nations such as the Algonquians. Other nations living in Ohio included Wyandots, Mingos, Ottawas, Shawneesm Delawares and many others, this shows the rich cultural background of this state.
However, these nations were greatly affected by the wars conducted by the French and the British in the Eighteenth century, and they didn't do much better when Ohio became part of the newly formed United States and many Native Americans migrated West. However, their influence is present in the language and names of topographical features. Today, Ohio boasts the title of being the Mother of Presidents, or the Modern Mother of Presidents, as eight Presidents, such as Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft and Warren G. Harding, were born in this state. If you want to speak about the epic scope of this state, this travel souvenir will help you.
