The Northwest Territory was acquired on July 13, 1787. It continued to be identified as the Northwest Territory until March 1, 1803 when it was admitted into the Union as the state of Ohio. The Northwest Ordinance was established in 1787 to run the territory and establish rules for statehood.

For those without any previous interaction with European-Americans, the high-minded language and intentions of the Ordinance might have been praised as fair and reasonable, since it sought to establish harmonious interactions between White settlers and Native residents. For those with previous experience, the Ordinance may very well have been scorned, whether as nobly intentioned but naive or as cleverly deceptive.
