現稱俄亥俄的土地,過去是西北地區(Northwest Territory)的一部分。這片土地是美國在獨立戰爭時擊敗英國所贏得的。俄亥俄於1803年加入聯邦,成為美國的第17州。它的名字源自於境內形成其南部邊界的一條河。俄亥俄是北美印地安文字,意即「大水」(great water)。「七葉樹之州」(Buckeye State)的首府是哥倫布(Columbus),而它的州樹則是(毫不令人感到意外的)七葉樹。人口密度高的俄亥俄州座落在東海岸及中西部間,而它最為人所知的事實是,美國歷任總統中有八位,不是在這兒出生就是住在這兒。俄亥俄的州花是紅色康乃馨。

The land we call Ohio today was part the Northwest Territory that the United States won by defeating the British in the Revolutionary War. Ohio was admitted into the Union as the 17th state in 1803. The state gets its name from the river that forms its southern border. Ohio is an Iroquois word meaning "great water." The capital of the "Buckeye State" is Columbus, and, not surprisingly, the state tree is the buckeye. Highly populated, Ohio is situated between the Eastern Seaboard and the Midwest, and is known for the fact that eight presidents were either born or lived there. The flower is the scarlet carnation.
