This chapter discusses the transition of the Natchez District from a Spanish province to a territory of the United States government. It describes the lives of the settlers while under the rule of the Spanish. It describes the aftermath of the Spanish rule as having left a legacy of bitterness and discord and being responsible for the separation of the ruling class of landholders into two hostile camps. When the Natchez District was turned over to the United States government, it was given its own local government system.

Keywords:   Natchez District, province, territory, Spanish rule, ruling class, landholders, local government system
