I know posting such pictures might not be a good practice, but I needed to specify the position of
Sugar Island and
St Joseph Island.
My question is:
Who, when, and what happened there, that caused
Sugar Island to be part of USA, instead of Canada, as St Joseph Island is?
If it is a long or complex story, just point me out to some links where I can read more about it.
If there were many changes, like for instance, with Alsace-Lorraine, then let’s just keep the last one, so that we don’t extent it too much.
The treaty clarified the channel that the border would follow between Lake Huron and Lake Superior, awarding Sugar Island to the U.S.
This treaty is the certainly the proximate cause for why Sugar Island is part of the US. However I am more interested in the ultimate cause. In other words, the Wikipedia article lacks any indication of why this island was awarded to the US.
