ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The outcome of the Toledo War was Congress granting the Upper Peninsula to Michigan. In 1840, Captain Cram was sent by Congress to establish the boundary between Michigan and Wisconsin. Near this tree, Captain Cram made his treaty with Chief Ca-sha-o-sha, whereby the Native Americans granted permission to the United States Government to run the boundary line. However, the boundary line was not established until 1847 when W.A. Burt was sent by Congress to complete the survey.
