Neil Armstrong is being remembered as a national hero, and another Ohioan who was an aviation pioneer. WYSO's Emily McCord reports, that even though he made history, he is also being remembered as a humble man.
Fort Meigs is the largest wooden fort ever built in North America…and it’s easy to see why they built a fort here – Marching up this 40’ bluff from the Maumee River seems like suicide for the enemy army. Especially if the ground is wet as it is today.
That’s probably what the fort’s builder, Eleazar Wood, saw as well. And it’s a good thing he did.
