Ohio Presidents: Surprising Legacies


The United States has had eight presidents from Ohio between the years 1841 and 1923, including five who served in the Civil War. William Henry Harrison, the first president from Ohio, was also the first one to die in office. Benjamin Harrison's wife, Caroline, put up the first Christmas tree in the White House. This exhibition features items related to the lives of the presidents and their wives, in addition to campaign materials and lesser-known facts.
