The term “Oregon Country”, often mentioned in AH, refers to a much larger territory disputed between the USA and Britain/Canada. The bottom half of this eventually became the states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, while the northern half became part of British Columbia. A quick glance at the map thread will show a large number of maps by Britons/Canadians and Americans claiming the whole territory for their country. No-one is quite sure why.
