At the end of the French and Indian Wars, Britain gained control of the territory by the treaty of 1763, but settlement was prohibited. Britain handed over the region to the United States in 1783. Settlement was allowed by the Ordinance of 1787, which established the Northwest Territory. Ohio became a state in 1803.
