Forgotten Visitors

Taking readers from the Northwest Indian War to post-industrial Toledo in the early-twenty-first century, Tedd Long traces the stories of famous and not-so-famous visitors to Northwest Ohio and uncovers the surprising details of their stay in his book, Forgotten Visitors; Northwest Ohio's Notable Guests. As a master storyteller, Long goes beyond the simple questions of who, when, and where as he keenly explores the alluring backstories and subplots of the local stopovers as an entertaining way to help readers appreciate the history of the Maumee Valley.
