Although settled by French missionaries and fur traders, the area came under British control after the French and Indian War. When the United States took charge after the American Revolution, Michigan became part of the Northwest Territory, even though the British were not driven out until 1795 and fought for control during the War of 1812. In 1805, a separate Michigan Territory was created gradually enlarged by the cession of Indian lands to the United States.
