At the end of the American Revolutionary War, England ceded all their land claims to the young United States. Included in that treaty was the Connecticut Western Reserve, an area that is now the northern portion of the state of Ohio. Wyandot, Huron and members of the Iroquois nation were living and hunting in this region. And, they were not informed of the treaty drawn up on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in Paris. During this period, settlements from the eastern states pushed into all of Ohio. The young settlement of Cleaveland struggled and finally took a tentative hold at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River.
