1817-, House of Representatives Journals
Journals of the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of the State of Alabama: 1817-, St. Stevens, Thomas Eastin, 1818, followed by other
state printers in other towns and cities, title varies, (Prior to its elevation to the status of a separate territory in 1817, Alabama had comprised
the eastern half of the Territory of Mississippi. The latter entity had been created by Congress in 1898 from lands disputed by the State of Georgia,
several native American tribes, and the United States itself. The whole of the sparsely settled Mississippi Territory was governed from Natchez by a

as the Alabama Territory. It was assumed from the beginning that Alabama’s territorial experience would be short. Therefore, rather than establishing a
unique territorial government, the region was governed much as it was during its Mississippi Territory period, with its territorial legislature being
comprised of transplanted Alabama members from the former Mississippi territorial legislature. As with its predecessor, the Alabama territorial
legislature had a House of Representatives and a Legislative Council. These worthies spent most of their energies during the two brief sessions of the
territorial legislature organizing the region for statehood. A constitutional convention was convened in July of 1819, and Alabama was admitted to the
