HistoryEdit

Before 1850Edit

The Lohana area was inhabited by the Ayuse and Armayessee Parkufos before English-speaking settlers arrived in the late-1700s. These two tribes began settling in the area in the late-1500s. The Ayuse occupied lands in present-day western Lohana, while the Armayessee occupied lands in present-day eastern Lohana. In the late-1690s, the A'Ico Parkufos began settling in present-day southern Lohana, along with the Allye and the Ayanonee. The Ayuse began exploring Armayessee lands in 1731. They found a plant native to the area and called it "pii-khou-kouzhe", which later evolved into "piccocchuse". The Ayuse began purchasing the plants from the Armayessee to use against enemies. In 1785, English-speaking settlers arrived. After living in the area for a few weeks, they discovered that the Ayuse were using a certain plant to defeat their enemies in battle. They taught the Ayuse how to use guns, and the Ayuse taught the English-speaking settlers how to use the piccocchuse. In 1803, when the Armayessee tried to take over Ayuse lands, the Ayuse teamed up with the English-speaking settlers to fight off the intruders. In 1806, the Armayessee lost the war and had to surrender their lands to the Ayuse, who later, without a fight, surrendered much of their land to Dragoonasag. Many of the Ayuse moved into present-day Arubio, while some remained in the Territory of Chaumaria and lived with the English-speaking settlers. In 1831, a group of people led by Abel McCrombie moved to present-day southern Lohana from Vegetano and started a community that would later become Majar. McCrombie's settlement was for "anyone who dreamed of living in a place where they do not have to worry about anything". Only thirteen of the 956,739 people living in the Territory of Chaumaria moved there. In 1837, the Territory of Chaumaria wanted to expand into A'Ico lands. The A'Ico refused to lose their land without a fight, and one of the costliest wars in "Lohana history" began. Six hundred Dragoonasag soldiers were killed, and so were 1,265 A'Ico. The Dragoonasag-A'Ico War ended in 1842, when the A'Ico surrendered their lands to the Territory of Chaumaria and Dragoonasag. In 1845, the Allye gave their lands up without a fight. In 1845, all lands in present-day Lohana became part of the Territory of Chaumaria.

1850-1900Edit

In 1850, the Territory of Chaumaria elected Thomas Penark the governor of the territory. Penark ordered the construction in the cities of Rourk, Rallystown, and Liberty. All three cities had skyscrapers by 1890. In 1875, all lands in present-day Lohana became part of the Cutra Territory. In 1876, the city of Nopoly, which would later become Lohana City, was built on the location of an ancient Parkufo town. In 1877, Nopoly became the Cutra Territory's capital. In 1890, John Joseph Colex, the founder of the "Colexian community", started a settlement in what is now Colex County.

After 1900Edit

In 1901, George Ardwin was elected the governor of the Cutra Territory. Ardwin served as governor from 1901 to 1913. In 1952, an "urban renewal plan" was announced, and new skyscrapers were built in Rourk, Rallystown, Liberty, and Nopoly. In 1969, Dragoonasag Interstate Routes 61 and 92 were built through the territory. In 1974, Dragoonasag Interstate Routes 14 and 98 were built through the territory. In 1987, the Cutra Territory became the Lohana Territory, while the state of Cutra remained. Nopoly became Lohana City. In 1989, the Lohana Territory became the state of Lohana.
