3. 1804 to 1809 INDIANA TERRITORY with District of Illinois and her
In 1804 the USA began to organize the Louisiana, even
though Spain had a suit in the courts to regain her, due to
treaty default, by France, when France illegally sold Louisiana
to the USA in 1802/3.
1804 The USA organized Louisiana into UPPER AND LOWER.
LOWER embraced the Lands of the what is now
Louisiana State and part of the Spanish Province of Caddo
Indian Reservation. Then LOWER was renamed Orleans and
elevated to the status of a Territory......ORLEANS
UPPER embraced the lands of the old pre 1763 French
Louisiana and the 6 Bulls Indian Confederation with the
exception of the lower part (which is present day state of
Louisiana). UPPER retained the name of LOUISIANA. Then
the USA renamed Louisiana as LOUISIANA REGIONS and attached
her to the District of Illinois which was annexed to
Indiana Territory. (NOTE: That part of the Louisiana Region
of 6 Bulls embraced what became todays MISSOURI STATE).
