1849-, Minnesota Session Laws
Laws of the State of Minnesota: 1849–, var. state printers, 1849– (Few states can match the fissiparous path of Minnesota’s evolution to statehood.
Portions of the area went through periods of French, British and Spanish rule prior to the American Revolution. In 1787 what for convenience can be
called Minnesota East, the area east of the Mississippi river, became part of the U. S. Northwest Territory. Meanwhile, between 1762 and 1800 Minnesota
West, the area west of the Mississippi river, bounced rapidly from French to Spanish and then back to French jurisdiction. Purchase of the Louisiana
Territory from Napoleon in 1803 finally brought Minnesota West into the Northwest Territory also. However, the northern boundaries of the Minnesota
territories were not established until a post-War of 1812 treaty between the U.S. and the British Empire delineated the forty-ninth parallel as the
northern boundary of both the U.S. and the two Minnesotas. Thereafter, Minnesota East, was shuffled successively into the Indiana Territory in 1800, the
Illinois Territory in 1809, the Michigan Territory in 1818, and the Wisconsin Territory in 1836. Meanwhile Minnesota West, which had few people, remained
more or less ungoverned until 1834, when Congress joined it with Minnesota East under the Michigan Territory. When the Wisconsin Territory was
carved from the new State of Michigan in 1836, Minnesota East was given to Wisconsin, while some parts of Minnesota West fell under the jurisdiction of the
new state of Iowa, other parts remaining ungoverned. Finally, in 1849, the people of both Minnesotas achieved limited, but united, self-governance as
the Minnesota Territory. The first Territorial Legislature met in Sept, 1849. Formal statehood came in 1858, although the first session of the State
Legislature met in Dec., 1857.)
