—Jamestown Settlement —

Capital-Jefferson City

Permanent settlement in the area was not established by France until the 1730s. In 1763 France ceded this region which was part of the Louisiana territory to Spain, who ceded it back in 1800. France sold the region to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. In 1812 the area became the Missouri Territory. Because of the slavery issue, Missouri was admitted to the Union as a slave state under the Missouri Compromise.
