Description:- The Northwest Ordinance (formally An Ordinance for the Government of the Territory of the United States, North-West of the River Ohio and also known as the Ordinance of 1787), enacted July 13, 1787, was an organic act of the Congress of the Confederation of the United States.

The upper Mississippi River formed the territory's western boundary. Pennsylvania was the eastern boundary.
