H I S T O ~ R I C A L F A C T S Akron Negro Civil War Veterans enlisted fiom Akron into the Union Army in 1861:

James R o b i n Mores lames John W. Brooks Frances M. Hailslock James Morrison Owen Hailstock Ahsolam H. BrooLp ' Washington Martin

They Fought lor Our Freedom! Akron centrally located between two great waterways in 1870 became an important

trading post, a clearing house for commerce carried on between northern and southern Ohio traders. Akron population awarding to the Federal censw in 1850 was 3.266 total population with a Negro population of 73. In 1860 the total pogulation was 3.520 with a Negro population of 24.

In 1864 due to the steady growth of the Village and the building of a railroad-the Atlantic and GreatPWestem which afforded direct connections with the eastern seaboad. the increase in manufacturing and in agriculture--it became necessary to extend the city limits South of East Fzchange Street and east of Arch Street extending to A~lingtoa This expansion and inmeaae in population inspired the demand for a charter. Without waiting for a Federal census. An enumeration was made and it was found that the population had increased from 3.520 total population including 24 Negroes. to a 5.000 population including 196 Negroes.

On January 21. 1865 the Secretary of Stbte proclaimed Akron a city of the second class. The early Negro settlers came to Akron 20 years before the Civil War. Mn. Tanner Ann Cooper became one among the first Negro property owners through the purchase of property at 70 N. Broadway where the Bowen school wan formerly located. Augustus W. Rowe, born August 10. 1830, employed as a waiter at the Empire Hdel. where the Portage Hotel is now located, later contracted to carry the h a i l under PoaC master Strict Ebtight was also an early Negro resident owning property on Garfield Ave. Mhere among the earlier Negro settlers were: Frances Hailstock, lames W. Brooks. Garfield Dandridge and Moses lames.

Negro citizens twk part in the upbuilding of a city which waa to become the 35th city in population. 12th in value of manufactures in the United States and the greatest rubber manufacturing center in the world. They helped build the canal. also played a _ prominent pan in the development of agriculture.
