From Ohio History Central
In 1768, the Iroquois Indians and the English signed a treaty at Fort Stanwix.
Colonial settlers immediately moved into the region. By the spring of 1774, violence had begun in the disputed area as these Native Americans, especially the Shawnee, tried to drive the English east of the Appalachian Mountains. The Indians' refusal to follow the treaty resulted in increased tensions with the English and conflicts such as Lord Dunmore's War in 1774.
