In the little under a year that I've lived in Cincinnati, I've been enthralled by the history of the city. Huge pieces of the Queen City's history, such as the canals, riverboats, and the riots as well as the minutia have been 100% new to me. To say that I was ignorant of the amazing history of Cincinnati would be quite an understatement. I had never even visited the city before taking a job here; I certainly knew nothing about it.
I've been learning details of the history of my current home piece by piece, almost randomly. I'd like to make a more concerted effort to learn more. With that in mind, I am on the look out for the best books which concern Cincinnati. It can be general history or more focused on a piece of the city's history. Both will satisfy me. The only thing I ask is that your recommendations are either still in print or are available for check out at one of the area's libraries. I already own Over-the-Rhine: When Beer Was King so I don't need that one.
I thank you in advance and look forward to your recommendations!
