( Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved ) As our country expanded westward from the original 13 colonies, rivers became primary forms of travel. Cincinnati was founded on the Ohio River near the Little Miami and the Great Miami Rivers in 1788. It quickly became our 1st major inland city that rivaled east coast cities in size and wealth. In 1853, Cincinnati became the 1st U.S. city to have a paid full-time fire department and in 1869 the Cincinnati Red-Stockings were the 1st professional baseball team. The Reds even played the 1st major league night baseball game here at the old Crosley Field. In 2003 they named the new baseball stadium the Great American Ballpark and in 2011 the new Great American Tower became Cincinnati's tallest building. In July 2012 the largest steamboat ever built, The American Queen, stopped by for another visit. There are many more reasons why Cincinnati is truly an ... All American City.
