I recently watched "Major League". It's a really good movie. And I love the opening song by Randy Newman about the Cuyahoga River Fire.

Harriet Beecher Stowe was a Connecticut native who moved to Ohio as an adult, wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin as a resident of Brunswick, Maine, moved to Florida and was an early promoter for its development. She settled back in Connecticut as a neighbor of Mark Twain and lived out her life in senility to the point of rewriting the novel without realizing she had previously written it.

That's my pedantic point and I know everyone will say, "but yeah she was technically an Ohio resident for part of her life before that" even though she wasn't raised there nor famous yet.

Never heard Cincinnati called the Queen City. I've always only known the Queen City as Charlotte.
