Abstract:

The collection consists primarily of records relating to William C.C. Claiborne's tenure as Louisiana Territorial Governor from 1805 to 1812. The most substantial correspondence was written to Claiborne from Dr. John Sibley, a judge and U.S. Indian Agent in Natchitoches. Correspondence from Sibley throughout 1805 discusses several aspects of territorial business, including native and slave affairs, resident opinion, and political intrigue within the region. At Claiborne's request Sibley gathered sworn depositions from residents of Natchitoches, which describe the material life of citizens and conditions under previous French and Spanish colonial rule. The collection also contains letters related to Claiborne's family, Claiborne's governing mandate, and his relationship to notable political and military contemporaries including Zebulon Pike, Edmund P. Gaines, and Dominick Augustin Hall.
