Early laws for Michigan Territory, including a reprinting of the ordinance creating the Northwest Territory. Michigan Territory, established in 1805, included the present states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa, as well as part of the Dakotas. Michigan gained statehood in 1837, at which point the remaining land area fell under the title of Wisconsin Territory. Scarce and early for the region.
