DAKOTA

I.342.1

DAKOTA, a territory of the United States, originally part of the Louisiana purchase (see ANNEXATIONS, I.), was organized by act of March 2, 1861. The portion of its present territory east of the Missouri was set off from Minnesota when the latter territory was erected into a state; the portion west of the Missouri was set off from the former territory, now state, of Nebraska. A large extent of territory to the west, formerly belonging to Dakota, now belongs to Wyoming and Montana. (See TERRITORIES.)
