The 49th parallel formed from The Oregon tready. This gave the US land from the Rocky Mountains to Georgia as the boundary between the United States and British Canada. The US gained control over the future states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana, and the British retained Vancouver Island and navigation rights to part of the Columbia River.
This area was owned by the British. After the American Revolution Great Briton moved up in to the Canada area to wait and see when and if the american government would crumble then they would gain control again.
