The early history of Columbiana County, OH, and its various communities -- Salem, New Lisbon, East Liverpool, Wellsville, Walker's, Leetonia, Columbiana, Salineville, East Palestine and Washingtonville -- are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 42 Page Booklet reprinted from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio, The Ohio Guide (a WPA Writers project), and other hard-to-find sources. The spiral-bound booklet is printed on 60# paper, with the print enlarged 10% for easier reading.
IN ADDITION TO THE BOOKLET, the buyer will receive THREE Computer-Enhanced 8 1/2 x 11 Prints made from engravings in the original book and suitable for framing.

Among the many and diverse subjects in the booklet are: Adam and Andrew Poe, Indian fighters; early Ohio newspaper history; the life of Clement Vallandigham and the Vallandigham Campaign; Quakers and the "Anti-Slavery Society"; the Underground Railroad; Confederate John Morgan's Raid and Capture; and the development of the Pottery Industry, including Knowles, Taylor and Knowles.
