THE PIONEERS: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West
A Massachusetts minister named Manasseh Cutler was instrumental in opening the vast Northwest Territory ceded to the U.S. by Great Britain as part of the Treaty of Paris, to veterans of the Revolutionary War and their families for settlement--with three remarkable conditions: freedom of religion, free universal education, and the prohibition of slavery. 32 pages of illustrations, many in color.
