Treaty with the Wyandots (1836)
On April 23, 1836, the Wyandot Indians agreed to relinquish all claims to three parcels of land in Crawford County, Ohio. Under this agreement, the United States government would sell the land and provide the Indians with all profits from the land sale.
The Treaty with the Wyandots, along with several other treaties between Native Americans and the United States government during the first decades of the nineteenth century, marked the slow but gradual removal of native people to land west of the Mississippi River. The removal of the Indians opened much of Ohio to settlement.
