Excerpt from Biography of the First Mayor of Cincinnati Men still living have seen the western line of civilization push steadily forward to the forests of Ohio, sweep beyond the Mississippi and strike across the plains to the west and leap to the Pacific. Men now living have seen all this; have seen a waste wilderness converted into a blooming garden dotted with the peaceful homes of more than ninety million people. Whatever may be our place in this great wonderland we ought not to be without a knowledge of the causes that made it what it is. We have no right to allow the names of those great men who won for us from the forests, the savages and wild beasts, our fair domain of fertile fields, to fade into oblivion. One of the men of considerable importance in the revolutionary war, and prominent in the conquest and development of early southern and western Ohio, was David Ziegler. He was born in the city of Heidelberg, on the Neckar in western Germany, August 16, 1748, according to one authority, but upon inquiry through civil and church authorities at Heidelberg, I have ascertained that one Johann David Ziegler's name appears recorded in a Lutheran register of births in the Providenz Kirche as having been born July 13, 1748, has father being Johann Heinrich Ziegler, hatmaker, and his mother Louise Friedericka, nee Kern. Of his family and the younger days of his life, little is known. His father, according to Rattermann, was an inn keeper, or vintner, whose inn was frequented largely by students of the University who had their "Paukboden" (a room for dueling or rapier-fighting) there. Whether these customary fights of the academicians stimulated Ziegler's appetite for war-like pursuits cannot be answered. However, in his earliest youth he possessed a liking for military life, and as the boundaries of the Holy Roman Empire's wine cellar, as Klauprecht calls his immediate fatherland, the Neckar valley, did not give him sufficient play room for his ambitions, he is said to have served in the Seven Year's War under Frederick the Great, of whom he was an ardent admirer.

Cincinnati is an amazing place to live and visit for so many reasons. Local author Wendy Beckman and illustrator Allison Ranieri celebrate the city's eight wonders--architecture, art, commerce, food, customs, geography, history and people. With its Venetian Gothic lancet arches and crystal chandeliers, the Cincinnati Music Hall stands as an architectural masterpiece. The Cincinnati Red Stockings made history as the first professional baseball team. Remnants of marine fossils from the Ordovician Period remind residents that the city was once under water. Limitless local varieties of goetta range from family recipes to trendy caf� dishes. And the city birthed trailblazers like track and field star DeHart Hubbard, the first African American to win an Olympic gold medal in an individual event. These stories and more reveal the unique character of the Queen City.
