Description
Vincennes was established in 1732 by François Marie Bissot, who was commissioned to construct a series of forts to combat British expansion in the Northwest Territory. In 1763 the post was turned over to the British, although many French settlers stayed in the area.
During the American Revolution 25-year-old George Rogers Clark attempted to seize all the land northwest of the Ohio River for Virginia; he defeated the British garrison in 1779. Virginia, however, failed to prevent the lawlessness and violence that beset the territory and ceded the land to the United States as a public domain five years later.
