1813-, Missouri - Terr./St., House Journals
Territory/State of Missouri General Assembly, House journals: title varies, 1813–, various state printers, 1813– (The area comprising present-day
Missouri was once just a part of the much larger colonial-era French and then Spanish province of Louisiana. Under both suzerainties, Louisiana was
divided for administrative purposes into two massive districts, Lower Louisiana with its seat of governance at New Orleans, and Upper Louisiana, governed
from St. Louis. After the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the U.S. retained this basic division, establishing the north/south dividing line at the
thirty-third degree of north latitude. Lower Louisiana became the Territory of Orleans. Upper Louisiana became the District of Louisiana and was placed under
the authority of the governor of the Indiana Territory. In 1804 the District of Louisiana was separated from the Territory of Indiana to become the
Territory of Louisiana, although a territory of the lowest order, administered by a governor and three territorial judges. Only in 1812, after large
portions of its land area had been broken off into other territories, and in pretty much its present dimensions, did the area we now know as Missouri
acquire self-government with its own General Assembly and a new name as the Territory of Missouri. The first territorial legislature met in July, 1813.
Formal statehood came in 1821 after a national struggle over the question of slavery and the balance of power between the northern ‘free states” and
their southern breather. The conflict was temporarily resolved under the “Missouri Compromise,” the main components of which were as follows. Missouri
was admitted as a “slave state,” balanced off by new “free state” Maine. Looking forward, slavery was prohibited in all portions of the former
Territory of Louisiana except for that portion which comprised the new state of Missouri. This compromise preserved the peace between the “slave” and “free”
states until the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 upset the status quo and led to the American Civil War. The first session of the statehood legislature was
held in September, 1821.)
