Not Northwest Territories[edit]

I removed the clause that stated that the Pageant of the Sault claimed the Northwest Territories as territory of the King of France because (1) the "Northwest Territories" as a defined geographical area did not exist until the 1780s and (2) the territory that was claimed was so much more vast than just the "Northwest Territories"; it included all of the territory adjacent to the Great Lakes (which includes Canada) and all the rivers flowing into or out of the lakes, which to the New France sense of geography in 1671 included the Mississippi River Valley. The territory claimed was "bounded on the one side by the Northern and Western Seas and on the other side by the South Sea including all its length and breadth." That basically describes all of central North America. R. D. Jones (talk) 20:22, 16 October 2011 (UTC)
