Of interest is the reference to 'Madawaska Settlements', an area left in dispute by Britain and the United States after the Treaty of Versailles set the border between the U.S. and Canada. Matters were brought to a head when a US settler, John Baker, attempted to declare the area a republic in 1827. After a failed attempt at arbitration by the King of the Netherlands in 1831 and the non-violent 'Aroostook War' of 1838-9, the matter was included in the Webster-Ashburton Treaty of 1842.
