American Revolution.
The proclamation of 1763 was a law that the colonists had to pay taxes and could not get the land that they fought for so that made them mad because they had to pay taxes from paper to tea.

The Declaration of Independance was written by a group of colonists to declare war. It also told the world why they wanted independance.

The colonists didn't like the new taxes they thought they were unfair. They felt they did not have any say in the government- Taxation without representation.They started talking about independance.

The Native Americans fought on the side of the British. The Native Americans did not like the colonists because they were taking their land.

The Land Ordinance called for measuring and mapping land sold or lost to Native Americans. It was to govern the new territory.

The Northwest Territory was the land east of the Mississippi river and north of the Ohio river.

The Northwest Ordinance created states in the territory. A state could be formed when an area had a population of over 60,000 people. The states that came from it are Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconson. The ordinance made slavery illegal in the territory.

The Territory of Michigan was formed in 1805. The capital city was Detroit. A bakery worker burnt it to the ground accidentally on June 11. 1805. The city had to be rebuilt.
