    Really you don’t know why they are called the Blue Jackets? I must remind you of a semi recent event, where two sides of an issue went to war. One side wore Grey Jackets, the other side BLUE Jackets.

  2. “The Blue Jackets name was selected because the name pays homage to Ohio’s contributions to American history and the great pride and patriotism exhibited by its citizens, especially during the Civil War as both the state of Ohio and the city of Columbus were significantly influential on the Union Army. Ohio contributed more of its population to the Union Army than any other state, while many of the Blue Coats worn by the Union soldiers were manufactured in Columbus.”
