Cincinnati is considered to have been the first American boomtown in the heart of the country in the early nineteenth century to rival the larger coastal cities in size and wealth. As the first major inland city in the country, it is sometimes thought of as the first purely American city, lacking the heavy European influence that was present on the east coast. However, by the end of the nineteenth century, Cincinnati's growth had slowed considerably, and the city was surpassed in population by many other inland cities.

"With one hand he returns the fasces, symbol of power as appointed dictator of Rome. His other hand holds the plow, as he resumes the life of a citizen and farmer." — Statue of Cincinnatus in Sawyer Point.

[9] Surveyor John Filson (also the author of The Adventures of Colonel Daniel Boone) named it "Losantiville" from four terms, each of a different language, meaning "the city opposite the mouth of the Licking River." Ville is French for "city," anti is Greek for "opposite", os is Latin for "mouth", and "L" was all that was included of "Licking River".[citation needed]
In 1790, Arthur St. Clair, the governor of the Northwest Territory, changed the name of the settlement to "Cincinnati" in honor of the Society of the Cincinnati, of which he was a member.[9] .The society honored General George Washington, who was considered a latter day Cincinnatus, the Roman farmer who was called to serve Rome as dictator, an office which he immediately resigned after completing his task of defeating the Aequians.^ He is a weak teacher in this respect who can not learn to call each pupil, in a school of forty, promptly by name at the close of the third half-day.

Government

The city is governed by a nine-member city council, whose members are elected at large. Prior to 1924, city council was elected through a system of wards. The ward system lent itself to corruption and Cincinnati was run by the Republican political machine of "Boss" Cox from the 1880s through the 1920s with a few brief interludes. A reform movement arose in 1923, led by another Republican, Murray Seasongood. .Seasongood eventually founded the Charter Committee, which used ballot initiatives in 1924 to eliminate the ward system and replace it with the current at-large system and also to introduce a city manager form of government.^ Government .--A large part of school management consists in government, but by no means all of it.

From 1924 to 1957, the council was selected by proportional representation. Beginning in 1957, all candidates ran in a single race and the top nine vote-getters were elected (the "9-X system"). The mayor was selected by the council. In 1977, Jerry Springer, later a controversial television talk show host, was chosen to serve one year as mayor.[20] Starting in 1987, the top vote-getter in the city council election automatically became mayor. Starting in 1999, the mayor was chosen in a separate election and the city manager received a lesser role in government; these reforms were referred to as the "strong mayor" reforms. .Cincinnati politics include the participation of the Charter Party, the party with the third-longest history of winning in local elections.^ See also: Politics of Ohio , Political party strength in Ohio , Ohio Democratic Party , and Ohio Republican Party Presidential elections results .

Residents of Cincinnati and surrounding areas played a major role in abolitionism, but there were also opponents to this movement.
Social tensions, the press of new immigrants and competition over jobs sometimes erupted into violence. In 1829 a riot broke out as anti-abolitionists attacked blacks in the city. Some 1,200 blacks left the city as a result of rioting and resettled in Canada.[22] The riot was a national topic of discussion in black communities. Representatives at the first Negro Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1830 discussed how to help the refugees.
As the anti-slavery movement grew, other riots occurred in 1836 and 1841.[22] In 1836 anti-abolitionists attacked a press run by James Birney, who published the anti-slavery weekly The Philanthropist. The mob grew to 700 and also attacked black neighborhoods.[23]
Tensions increased after passage in 1850 of the Fugitive Slave Act. .Abolitionists maintained stations of the Underground Railroad in the area, as slaves frequently escaped across the river.^ One is the ghost of a slave named Luther who died while the house was part of the Underground Railroad.

Harriet Beecher Stowe lived here for a while and used the area as the setting for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. She had met escaped slaves and heard their stories. Levi Coffin made the Cincinnati area the center of his anti-slavery efforts in 1847.[24] Today, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center commemorates the era at its center located at 50 East Freedom Way.
The 20th and 21st centuries had different issues in race relations, aggravated by late 20th century economic problems. In 2001 a series of racially charged riots occurred after the shooting death of a black man, Timothy Thomas, by police during a foot pursuit.

Crime

Crime increased after the 2001 riots, but has been decreasing ever since.
.Before the riot of 2001, Cincinnati's overall crime rate was dropping dramatically and had reached its lowest point since 1992.[25] After the riot violent crime increased, and in 2005 Cincinnati was ranked as the 20th most dangerous city in America.^ But the landmarks of the lesson, the points to be reached, may be settled before hand, as well as the exact and clear language in which to state the conclusions when they shall have been found.

[26] The police force "work slowdown" correlates with this increase. .An article published in the Cincinnati Enquirer on May 30, 2007 affirmed that incidents of violent crime, including homicides, were 15.3 percent lower than they had been in the first four months of 2006. Children's Hospital saw a 78 percent decrease in gunshot wounds, and University Hospital had a 17 percent drop.^ The law of correlation holds with intellectual and moral forces no less than with physical forces; forces may be transferred or transmuted,--they are never lost.

The city has attempted to reduce gun violence in Cincinnati by using the Out of the Crossfire program at University Hospital, which is a rehabilitation program for patients with gunshot wounds. The program attempts to prevent them from falling back into the cycle of violence which many gunshot victims return to after leaving the hospital.[29] Mayor Mark Mallory is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition,[30] a bi-partisan group with a stated goal of "making the public safer by getting illegal guns off the streets." 2007 saw 68 homicides, nearly a 25% drop from 2006 in which there were 89. However, this is still not lower than 2000 count of 15 homicides.[31] .As of May 2008, violent crime is down by almost 12% compared to the crime rate at that point last year.^ Ohio Income Tax Information Notice - 2008 This form may only be used to file for years 2007 and beyond.

Additions made later, of a connection from Over-the-Rhine to Uptown and a loop through Uptown, have raised the overall estimated cost to $185 million. .It is predicted that the system could generate more than $1.4 billion in new private investment over the next 15 years through property redevelopment and attracting new residents.^ Few topics connected with the work of the school have been more discussed of late than the "marking system."

    The safer, and more tourist friendly, areas of OTR are near downtown along Vine Street, but the farther north you move the sketchier and less developed the neighborhood becomes (i.e. think drug dealers, prostitutes).

Naturally, OTR is widely discussed and debated among Cincinnatians. .Since the 1970s low-income housing advocates and historic preservationists have been battling over the future of OTR. Low-income housing was greatly expanded during the 1980s, but since the late 1990s the neighborhood has been becoming gentrified, resulting in an influx of wealthier residents into what had previously been a low-income area.^ Youngstown - Youngstown State University, Kilcawley House - Strange growling and whisperings have been heard in the back stairwell by Resident Assistants during the summer.
