This chapter provides a brief introduction to the Mississippi Territory. It was formed during President John Adams' second year of office, and after the Revolution many immigrants traveled from the mountains and into the territories that are now known as the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio. The chapter also looks at the Natchez District, which was handed over to the government of the United States. It was located in a remote southwestern corner of the country and was populated by former British Loyalists and wary Native Americans.
