In the mid-1780s, pioneers surged into the Old Northwest Territories, driven to clear the heartland of America. Old maps, journals, prints, and re-creations illustrate the life and struggle of these men and women. Chronicles their migration by riverboat, their settlements, social life, housing, farming, problems, and the courage of these hard-working people who settled today's Midwestern states of Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana.
