On this site the United States in Congress Assembled on the 13th day of July in the year of Our Lord 1787 and of their sovereignty and independence the twelfth enacted an ordinance for the government of the territory northwest of the river Ohio, by which it was dedicated forever to freedom under another ordinance passed here by the same body on the 27th day of the same month. Manasser Cutler acting for the Ohio Company of Associates, an organization of soldiers of the Revolutionary Army, purchased from the Board of Treasury for settlement a portion of the waste and vacant land of the territory on April 7th 1788. Rufus Putman heading a party of forty eight began the first settlement at Maretta and on July 15th Arthur St. Clair as first governor established civil government in the territory. From these beginnings sprang the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin.
