The Confederation Congress and the Creation of the American Trans-Appalachian Settlement Policy 1783-1787(2006)
AbstractImmediately following the Revolutionary war, thousands of American pioneers began to settle the Trans-Appalachian West. Between 1783 and 1787, the Confederation Congress passed numerous laws to govern certain activities. This study of the creation of the first American western policy forms a microcosm through which to view the ongoing course of the American Revolution.
