The area that would one day become Ohio was initially occupied by American Indians of the Wyandot, Delaware, Miami, and Shawnee tribes. The region was visited by French explorer Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle in 1669. France claimed the area in 1682. Starting around 1730, traders from the British colonies of Pennsylvania and Virginia entered the region, and the French fought to keep them out. France relinquished its claim to Ohio in 1763, and ceded the territory to the British. During the American Revolution, George Rogers Clark seized British posts and held the region until Britain gave up its claim pursuant to the terms of the Treaty of Paris in 1783. Ohio became American territory after the American Revolution.
