Ohio changed hands before becoming a part of the United States of America. 



France’s control of Ohio ended when England defeated them in the French and Indian War.

The land was subsequently ceded to the English in 1763, who immediately proclaimed that it was explicitly reserved for Native Americans, barring colonists from settling further into the area.

In 1778, during the American Revolution’s first stages, the Virginia colony claimed a large region, including modern-day Ohio, by right of conquest, which they named Illinois county, Virginia.

Following the United States’ victory in the revolution, Virginia soon ceded their claims to the region and relinquished them to the United States in 1782.

Within just 21 years, modern-day Ohio was incorporated into the Northwest Territories and then made into the state of Ohio on February 19, 1803
