After the Revolutionary War, the Land Ordinance of 1785 was established and allowed the Americans to settle further to the West in the Northwest territory (in Native American land). Resulting in a clash between the two parties.
Washington Sends Troops
DEFEND OUR AMERICAN SETTLERS!
As more settlers entered the land to settle 'legally' when following the Land Ordinance of 1785 and Northwest Ordinance, the Native Americans clashed with the American settlers more and the tension increased. The Native Americans began to fight back.
Effects: American Settlers Defeat the Indian Confederation
This proves that we can use our military forces to put down the rebellious Native Americans....
In the summer of 1794, the tension between the settlers and the Native Americans grew greatly and the Natives fought back even more in efforts to drive them out.
The Treaty of Greenville
After multiple American Indian tribes, including the Shawnee Indians, Miami Indians, and Delaware Indians, rallied together around the chiefs Little Turtle and Blue Jacket in attempts to drive the settlers out of their lands on June 30th, 1794, George Washington sent Anthony Wayne and military troops to defend the settlers.
The American military sent to defend the settlers defeated the Native Americans after weeks of small battles on August 20th, 1794 during the Battle of the Fallen Timbers. Because of the battle or victory, the national policy in which military could repress the Natives developed.
This was beneficial for the development of the United States but not for the Native Americans.
The Treaty of Greenville was signed to resolve the Battle of the Fallen Timbers and made the Native Americans give up their lands in modern day Ohio and Indiana. The Native American tribes were basically forced to sign the treaty and lose their land.
