The Indiana General Assembly, A History: Introduction

The Indiana General Assembly, founded in 1816, has served the needs of Hoosiers for nearly 200 years. It has had many challenges and victories over this time, from the increasing demands of infrastructure, education, war, and commerce to the challenges presented by the United States and the World. This blog is an attempt to present this history to the general reader in the context of the State, the United States, and the World. Presenting these posts in increments of ten years, it will show the challenges to Indiana and how its legislative body responded to them. The first post, covering 1816-1825, will be posted within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
