Your Natchez History Minute is brought to you by Natchez National Historical Park. William C.C. Claiborne was territorial governor and superintendent of Indian affairs of the Mississippi Territory from 1801 to1803. Born in Sussex County, Virginia, Claiborne attended the College of William and Mary. Later, he pursued the study of law and in 1794, relocated to Tennessee where he quickly made a name for himself. Two years later, he was appointed to the Tennessee Supreme Court. The following year he ran successfully for the United States House of Representatives, serving until 1801 when he was appointed governor of the Territory of Mississippi. While governor, Claiborne worked closely with the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes, ironing out differences and working to improve their living conditions and general well-being. When a small pox epidemic broke out in 1802, Claiborne advocated the first mass vaccination in the territory which saved the population of Natchez. Claiborne moved to New Orleans in 1803 to oversee the transfer of the Louisiana Territory from France. He served as territorial governor of Louisiana through 1812. After Louisiana achieved statehood, Claiborne became the state’s first elected governor, serving until 1816. Claiborne died in 1817.
