1860 Federal Census
Dakota Territory on the Red River
Transcribed by ©K. Torp, 2006


The Dakotas were part of the Louisiana Purchase. Prior to 1820, Dacotah was part of Missouri Territory. At different points in time, the western half was attached to Nebraska Territory, while the eastern half was included in Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin Territories. The area became known as Dakota Territory in 1861. In 1863, the Homestead Act was passed and settlers flooded into the territory. Dakota Territory was split into North and South Dakota in 1887.
