On April 23, 1836, the Wyandot 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 American Indians and the United States government during the first decades of the nineteenth century, marked the ramping up of calculated U.S. government efforts to strategically and forcibly remove the old Northwest Territory's American Indian peoples to land west of the Mississippi River.
