  • Answer:

    The Northwest Ordinance was a law adopted by Congress on July 13, 1787. The main goal of the law was to create the Northwest Territory, as the first organized territory in the United States.

    It is one of the most important regulations of the First Congress, apart from the Declaration of Independence. Extremely important was the setting of a precedent under which the federal government could expand to the West by accepting new states and not by expanding existing ones. It is the most important piece of legislation passed by Congress on its relationship with America.  A ban on slavery was established in the territory, which was composed of today's Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
