Aside from Ohio Territory, neighboring states attempted to provide similar benefits for some of its free residents as Sarah and Abraham Whipple perceived that they had achieved respect, prosperity, and security in the new settlement. Also, the welfare of the citizens was one of the fundamental concerns of the government's new republican system. Although the conventions of eleven states have already ratified the United States Constitution, North Carolina and Rhode Island desisted from giving support to the new national authority structure. As such, the Marietta community had reason to draw attention to the future of the settlement and to further occupation of Ohio. This chapter looks into the effects of the second Indian unrest, as well as the important events in Ohio between 1789 and 1819.
