   ||    Northwest Indian War    ||    Multiple Tribes vs. Settlers

The Treaty of Greenville - This treaty marked the end of an undeclared and multi-tribal war begun in the late 1770s and intertwined with the revolutionary war that was led by the Shawnee who fought to resist American expansion into Ohio. In 1795, over a thousand native delegates ceded two-thirds of present-day Ohio, part of Indiana, and the sites where the modern cities of Detroit, Toledo, and Chicago are currently situated. The natives, in return, were promised a permanent boundary between their lands and American territory."
