    • found: Indiana historian, Mar. 1999, via WWW, viewed July 25, 2007:p. 8 (On May 7, 1800, Congress split the Northwest Territory into two sections. The first Indiana Territory included everything west of approximately the western border of present-day Ohio. The large area of present-day Indiana in the southeast--called the gore--remained part of the Northwest Territory) p. 6 (Apr. 19, 1816, Congress passes an Enabling Act, permitting voters in Indiana Territory to elect delegates to a June meeting to determine Indiana statehood. On Dec. 11, 1816, the Congress adopts and President James Monroe signs a resolution admitting Indiana to the Union)
    • found: Wikipedia, July 25, 2007(Indiana Territory was an organized territory of the United States from 1800 to 1816; the territory included all of present-day Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, as well as the portions of Minnesota originally part of the Northwest Territory. It also included almost all of the upper peninsula of present-day Michigan and the western half of the lower peninsula. It also included the portion of present-day Ohio west of the Great Miami River. This latter parcel became part of the state of Ohio when it was admitted to the Union in 1803. The eastern half of Michigan was added to the Indiana Territory at that time; area of the territory was reduced in 1805 by the creation of the Michigan Territory, and in 1809 by the creation of the Illinois Territory. The enabling act of Apr. 19, 1816, which authorized the people of Indiana Territory to form a state, transferred the area of approximately 30 survey townships from Michigan Territory to Indiana, leaving the territory within the current boundaries of the state of Indiana)
