What was the 4th of July like in 1857? Ed Lentz ‘As it were’ column in This Week Community Newspapers is called City changes; 4th of July doesn’t It’s about celebrating Independence Day in Columbus and across the river in Franklinton way back then. History of Columbus!

Ohio Village Muffins Vintage Baseball Game – July 04, 2007 2:00 PM – Ohio Historical Center/Ohio Village

The Ohio Village Muffins are from the 1860′s? Or recreate the 1860′s? According to the Wikipedia entry on the Ohio Village Muffins it was called “base ball” back then.

One of my favorite Ed Lentz columns about Columbus history inspired Circus Town Columbus.
