This chapter discusses the transformation of the Mississippi Territory from being a boorish community to a mature society. It describes the new Natchez District and Washington: Natchez as a commercial and agricultural center and Washington as the home of the territory's social center. These two towns were considered the most important in the territory, although a number of villages are also discussed in this chapter. It also looks at the different societal factors of the territory, including education, land ownership, and politics.
