In 1819, Oregon was owned by the U.S., Russia, Great Britan, and Spain. But Soon Russia and Spain would leave the ownership which left The U.S and Britan to have it alone.

The Pioneers who were already at Oregon sent back letters decribing Oregon as a pioneer's Paradise saying that the sun was always shining and that disease was unknown. By 1843 about 1000 people were on their way to Oregon since there were soo many people going to Oregon it was named "Oregon fever"
President Polk is elected because of his bold all or nothing statements on Oregon. Polk would try to fulfill this least violence as possible since he thought that it wasn't starting a war over.
since Polk didn't want to spill blood there was a senate debate over what part of Oregon we should get and the favored vote was to settle it peacefully and not demand all of Oregon. So Polk makes the decision to make a treaty with Britain and we get modern Oregon.
