1835 · The Toledo War

Age 0

The Toledo War was a boundary dispute between Ohio and Michigan because both claimed jurisdiction over the Toledo region. The situation came to a head when Michigan petitioned for statehood in 1835 and sought to include the disputed territory within its boundaries. Both states deployed militias on opposite sides and began mutual taunting, but the only military confrontation was a shot being fired into the air. During the summer of 1836, Congress proposed a compromise whereby Michigan gave up its claim to the strip in exchange for its statehood and about three-quarters of the Upper Peninsula. Thus, resolving the Toledo War.

Age 2
