The present Nebraska region was initially dominated by France. In 1803, after the Treaty of Paris, the territory was purchased by the United States, and in 1812, the American government created the Missouri Territory, which included Nebraska. The state was finally created in 1854 through the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
