Basic History

Spanish and English sailors are believed to have sighted the Oregon coast in the 1500s and 1600s. Disputes for control of Oregon between American settlers and the Hudson Bay Company were finally resolved in the 1846 Oregon Treaty, in which Great Britain gave up claims to the region. In 1848, the Oregon Territory was created, but the area was reduced with the creation of Washington Territory in 1853, and Oregon became a state in 1859 with a constitution that prohibited slaveholding but also forbade free blacks from entering the state.
