In an act of January 6, 1821, the Indiana General Assembly, then meeting at Corydon, named the new capital of the state "Indianapolis." Jeremiah Sullivan, later an eminent Hoosier jurist, acting in cooperation with Samuel Merrill and with the approval of Governor Jonathan Jennings, proposed Indianapolis as the name which was chosen in preference to Tecumseh, Suwarrow and Concord.
