Land ceded in treaty of 1830


A treaty was signed July 15, 1830 between Native Americans and the United States government over land.  One agreement between the Sac and Fox Tribes and the U.S. ceded a strip of country 20 miles wide, running from the Mississippi River to the Des Moines River.

A second treaty signed the same day ceded land from the Sioux Tribe.  The land from both treaties was to be used as a neutral hunting ground until the government decided to make other use of it.
