ORDINANCE OF 1787
$6.95
The Ordinance of 1787 provided for the creation of "not less than three nor more than five states," and included provisions for the advancement of education, the maintenance of civil liberties, and the exclusion of slavery. The states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin are the result of this historic document. In this issue, we will examine the circumstances surrounding the development of the Ordinance, as well as its significance, both as a prelude to the Bill of Rights and as the primary influence for westward expansion. We'll also meet the Dunsmoor family and learn of their move from New England to the unsettled Northwest territory in search of a better life, as told by a family member.
