Description: Postcard showing a photograph of the McCook house. The Fighting McCooks, a family of Union Army volunteers during the American Civil War, resided in the county. During the American Civil War, fifteen members of the McCook family from Ohio fought for the Union, earning them the nickname "The Fighting McCooks." Although scholars disagree on the exact number of McCooks who fought in the Civil War, it appears that Daniel McCook and eight of his nine sons took up arms for the North, as did his brother, John McCook, and John's five sons. Individually, the two families were known as the Tribe of Dan and the Tribe of John. Together, they came to be referred to as the "Fighting McCooks." View on Ohio Memory.
