Ohio is the only U.S. state whose state flag is not a rectangle. Oregon is the only U.S. state whose flag has completely different designs on the front and back.

If you put a hinge on the western border of the state of Texas and opened it like a door, it would extend into the Pacific Ocean. If you hinged Texas on its eastern border, it would extend into the Atlantic Ocean.

Ohio petitioned for statehood in 1803, but Congress forgot to pass legislation ratifying its constitution. For 150 years Ohio had representation in the House and Senate, voted for President, and acted as a state, but was actually the 48th state admitted to the Union, followed only by Alaska and Hawaii.

Born in Ohio, Presidents William Henry Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, and Warren G. Harding were not actually eligible to be President when they served.

In 1953, Congress got around to approving Statehood for Ohio, making the approval retroactive to 1803.

Did you know that if Alaska was split in two, then Texas would be the 3rd largest state in the union

I too, thought this was false but did learn something. Thanks JohnF, as I have been having too much fun this morning with this new education alongside this map I printed out and am showing customers/employees. No one else so far knew this either.
