  • Shays' Rebellion
  • The Land Ordinance of 1785 was a system for settling in the Northwest territory. The Law Stated that the territory was to be split into townships and surveyed.
  • The Northwest Ordinance set up government for the Northwest which stated that any Territory would have to divide into townships which would further divide into 36 more sections. Another thing it did was it guaranteed basic rights to the settlers and outlawed slavery. It also introduced the ability to make territory into a state.
  • This is what the territories looked like.
  • Settlers began to get angry, because of all of the weaknesses in the A of C. They were being taxed unfairly for money most of them didn't even have. Many Farmers and other settlers joined in on Shays' Rebellion, they got so rowdy that the militia had to be called in.
