Regarding the Northwest Territories in the United States:

The British ceded the area north of the Ohio River and west of the Appalachians at the end of the Revolutionary War with the Treaty of Paris in 1783.

In 1795, the U.S. and various tribes of native Americans signed the The Treaty of Granville, which gave the U.S. a portion of the Northwest Territories located in southeastern Ohio and northern Illinois.
