A draft excerpt from "How America Can Bike And Grow Rich, The NBG Manifesto"
Located on the Ohio River, in 1790, Cincinnati was established by the systematic plan the US government had set up to formally populate an area bounded by Pennsylvania, the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, the Great Lakes and Canada called the Northwest Territories. It was the second settlement to reach the benchmarks that had been set for recognitions as a population center. Only Marietta, in the state’s southeast corner preceded Cincinnati before it was later determined that there were enough people, in 1803 to form the entire state of Ohio. Ohio was followed by Indiana (1816), Illinois (1818), Michigan (1837). Wisconsin (1848) and Minnesota (1858) .
