The land passed from France to the United States in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase. Arkansas then became a territory on March 2, 1819: the Post of Arkansas was designated its capital.

The Territorial Secretary Robert Crittendon, acting in the absence of Governor James Miller, presided at the territory's first legislature on July 28 of that year.

The first issue of the Arkansas Gazette was published at the Post on November 20, 1819.
