Can you tell me what Ohio's old state capital was?
"Chillicothe" is a Shawnee word for a certain clan. Several historic towns in Ohio were known by that name because when a village was home to the principal chief of the tribe it was given the name "chillicothe"—as he moved, so did the name. Ironically, the modern Chillicothe was never the site of a Shawnee town.
