This chapter discusses the tensions between the residents of the Natchez District and the residents of the “Bigbee” District during the acquisition of Louisiana into the Mississippi Territory. While those in Natchez were able to enjoy the cotton boom, those in Bigbee were unable to enjoy either long-term benefits or immediate relief. This discussion looks at the differences between these two districts and the problems encountered by the residents of the Bigbee District during the administration of Winthrop Sargent and William Claiborne.

Keywords:   tensions, Natchez District, Bigbee District, Louisiana, Mississippi Territory, cotton boom, benefits
