Treaty of Greenville

Place: Greenville, Ohio

The Treaty of Greenville was signed after the Battle of Fallen Timbers and ended the Northwest Indian War, also known as Little Turtle's War. General Anthony Wayne negotiated the treaty with a coalition of leaders from fifteen Great Lakes-region Native American tribes. The treaty gave the U.S. trading authority over the Native Americans of the Ohio River valley and ceded most of Ohio to the United States.
