Webster-Ashburton Treaty Signed Aug 9, 1842

 

The Webster-Ashburton Treaty, which established the boundary between the United States and Canada, was signed by the United States and Great Britain. Minnesota’s “Northwest Angle” was a result of this treaty.*

Jesus, thanks that You respect our boundaries. Thanks for the peaceful relationship we have enjoyed with Canada. Will You watch over this border, all Minnesota state borders, and our personal borders as Minnesotans this day? Will You be our “keeper”?
