1817-, Alabama Session Laws
Acts of the General Assembly of the Territory/State of Alabama, passed at the session of ….: 1817–, title varies, Saint Stevens, etc., var. state
printers, 1817–, 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 governor appointed under the
terms of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. The territorial years were unhappy ones for the easterners, who were isolated from the Mississippi
territorial government and consistently underrepresented in its legislature. After two decades the conflicting claims to parts of the larger territory by
Georgia had been settled with monetary payments and those of the Native Americans by war. The only question remaining for Congress was whether to admit the
whole of the vast Mississippi Territory as one large state, as the westerners wanted, or as two entities, with Alabama being separate, as desired by
the easterners. Congress went with the second option. In 1917 Mississippi was made a state, and Alabama was severed off 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 Union as a state in December.
The first state capital was at Saint Stevens. Then came Cahaba, in 1819, Tuscaloosa, in 1826, and finally Montgomery in 1846.)
