The region was populated by Indians - Potawatomis and Shawnees - when it was first explored in the eighteenth and century by French from Quebec.

First colony

The first permanent colony, Vincennes, was founded in 1732. The Paris Treaty of 1763 forced France to surrender the region to England. After the War of Independence, the State passed under the control of the United States and was erected in autonomous territory in 1800. The struggle against the Indians ended only with the victory of William Henry Harrison in 1811, at Tippecanoe, near the Fayette. A large number of Indians were moved to the west between 1820 and 1850. Territorial governor from 1800 1812, Harrison became in 1840 the ninth president of the United States. Colonization then accelerated and Indiana became part of the Union on December 11, 1816, as the nineteenth American state. Essentially an agricultural state until World War I, Indiana has since experienced an important industrial development.
