For About Four Cents An Acre. . .

. . . Ohio was joined by the rest of the Northwest Territory as it was bought from France under the Louisiana Purchase on this date 209 years ago.

The Northwest Territory portion.
The remaining purchase in 1803.

Glad France and the federal government didn't think to retain the mineral rights.
