The Treaty of Greene Ville

The Greenville Treaty Line established new western boundaries for the United States in 1797 and established peace between the United States of American and the tribal nations of the "Wyandots, Delawares, Shawanees, Ottawas, Chippewas, Pattawatimas, Miamis, Eel Rivers, Weas, Kickapoos, Piankeshaws, and Kaskaskias" following the Battle of Fallen Timbers.
