Toledo is the fourth most populous city in the U.S. state of Ohio and is the county seat of Lucas County. Toledo is in northwest Ohio, on the western end of Lake Erie, and borders Michigan. The city was founded in 1833 on the west bank of the Maumee River, originally incorporated as part of Monroe County, Michigan Territory, then re-founded in 1837, after conclusion of the Toledo War, when it was incorporated in Ohio.

Toledo grew quickly as a result of the Miami and Erie Canal and its position on the railway line between New York City and Chicago.

In the immediate aftermath of the Great War, Toldeo saw substantial conflicts between the owners of the city's numerous steel mills and the men who worked those mills. This conflict, and conflicts like it throughout the country, helped propel the Socialist Party to power.

The Socialist Party held its presidential convention in Toledo in 1920, where they nominated Upton Sinclair as their candidate. Sinclair went on to win the election.

Early in the Second Great War, Toledo was subject to Confederate bombing raids as they thrust through Ohio during Operation Blackbeard.[1]

Chester Martin hailed from Toledo.
