    Green Initiatives & Environmental History for: Indiana


    Basic History

    First explored by the French in 1679-1680, the region figured importantly in the Franco-British struggle for North America that culminated in British victory in 1763. During the American Revolution, it was recaptured from the British, and by the Treaty of Paris of 1783 ending the Revolutionary War, Great Britain ceded the region to the United States. In 1800, Indiana Territory was formed and included the states of Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin, and parts of Michigan and Minnesota. A constitutional convention met in 1816, and Indiana achieved statehood.
