    Default Ohio

    Let's keep the discussion going. So why is OHIO written vertically, unlike all other state names around the borders?

    Beyond the obvious literal reference to the state of Ohio and Ohio-related things (Columbus, Ohio River, USS Ohio, etc.):

    - as written, OHIO reads the same when held up to a mirror
    - as written, it still reads like the other states along the left border, since the I rotated 90 degrees looks like an H, and the H looks like an I.

    Well, it just happens that I live only 15 minutes from G.R. Ohio, so if we can figure out any more, I can do a little exploring! The OHIO has held some interest since it is different than the rest of the states in the border.
