A New National Government

Dividing western lands

The territory was divided into 10 districts.

Land Ordinance of 1785

Land would be surveyed and divided into a neat grid of townships, each 6 miles square.

Each township had 36 sections, each 1 mile square.

Government owned four of the sections.

One section would be sold to support public schools.

This same regular grid was used in other territories. It ended many boundary disputes.
