  Northwest Indian War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northwest Indian War (1785–1795), also known as Little Turtle's War and by various other names, was a war fought between the United States and a large confederation of Native Americans ("Indians") for control of the Northwest Territory, which ended with a decisive U.S. victory at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794.
This was finally resolved in the French and Indian War, in which France relinquished any claims on the area with the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1763.
The Indian tribes in the Old Northwest, however, were not parties to this treaty, and many of them, especially leaders such as Little Turtle and Blue Jacket, refused to recognize American claims to the area northwest of the Ohio River.

 Indian Wars
Indian Wars, armed conflicts fought between native inhabitants of North America and white Europeans, often represented by government forces, during the period of exploration and settlement.
War with the Native Americans of New England was avoided until 1637, when the Pequot War resulted in the virtual extermination of the Pequot.
The causes of this war, and of the English-Narragansett conflict of 1643-1645 and King Philip's War of 1675-1676, were complicated and disputed, with both sides alleging violations of understandings with the other.

 War of 1812
The North American War of 1812 between the United States and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland is one of several wars associated with that year.
This is the first major war of the new country, and the first time that a war needed "justification" presented to its citizens.
At the beginning of the War of 1812 it is estimated that perhaps one third of the inhabitants of Upper Canada for example were American born, some were United Empire Loyalists but others had come just for the cheap farmland and many had little loyalty to the British Crown at the beginning of the war.

The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), also known as the American War of Independence, was a conflict that erupted between Great Britain and revolutionaries within thirteen British colonies, who declared their independence as the United States of America in 1776.
Throughout the war, the British were able to use their naval superiority to capture and occupy coastal cities, but control of the countryside (where most of the population lived) largely eluded them.
The northern, southern, and naval theaters of the war converged in 1781 at Yorktown, Virginia.

 Ch. 1, from The Indian War of 1864, by Eugene Ware
The Indian tribes were governed by agents appointed by a dishonest Secretary of the Interior, and the spirit of rebellion was fomented among them as an incident to the coming war.
But not only the tribes of the Indian Territory seceded, and put themselves in the scale of antagonism to the United States of America, but through their efforts the whole Indian population of the West was precipitated against the border States as far north as Minnesota, where barbarous massacres took place.
One after another of these Indians made efforts to escape, but the eyes of the guards and of the whole escort were upon the Indians, and every time that one of them made an attempt he lost his life.
