district. From 1783 to 1842, the Quebec, Maine and New Brunswick border area was the scene of military operations involving the United States and the British Crown colonies of Canada.
Although the conflict did not lead to bloodshed, the series of skirmishes among the inhabitants of the border area became known as the Aroostook War. The real issue at stake between the two countries was the Aroostook lumber resources.
In 1842, the Webster-Ashburton Treaty brought an end to the conflict when lord Ashburton, representing the British Crown, came to an agreement with Daniel Webster, US Secretary of State, concerning the location of the border. This compromise settled the dispute over the Aroostook district and the Quebec — Maine border.
The Webster-Ashburton Treaty determined the border we know today, but it was not until 1908 that the two governments would definitively resolve the Quebec — Maine border issue.
