Following exploration by the Spanish and French, in the 17th and 18th centuries, the Lewis and Clark expedition maped Oregon in their own hunt for the Northwest Passage. Beginning in the 1830, many groups of pioneers traveled to the state on the well-known Oregon Trail, as well as the U.S. started combined settlement of the region with the United Kingdom. In 1846, the edge between U.S. and British territory was officially created at the 49th parallel - the part of the territory that was given to Britain would finally become part of Canada.
