Location:Toledo sits in northwestern Ohio at the mouth of the Maumee River where it empties into the western end of Lake Erie.

Conflicts: In 1794 during the British and Indian War the Battle of Fallen Timbers took place at Turkeyfoot Rock along the shores of the Maumee River. There was action downriver from that site during the War of 1812 which triggered the construction of Fort Meigs in 1813.

Settlement: Because this area of the state was the Great Black Swamp up until the 1800's, this was the last area of the state to be settled by pioneers. Perrysburg was surveyed in 1816. Maumee was platted in 1817. Toledo was founded in 1833. Sylvania was platted in 1836.

Industry: Toledo produced many automotive related items for the Detroit car companies. When Edward Drummond Libbey moved his glass manufacturing here, Toledo ultimately became the Glass Capital of the World being the location of Libbey Glass, Libbey-Owens-Ford, Owens-Illinois, and Owens-Corning.
