Iowa Becomes a Territory
This video player uses Microsoft Silverlight.
In 1834, Iowa became a part of the Michigan Territory. In 1836, Michigan became a state and Iowa was made a part of the new Wisconsin Territory. By 1838, Iowa’s population numbered more that ten thousand and Congress created the separate Territory of Iowa. The pioneers had already worked their magic on some of the land of Iowa. Strong, healthy crops grew where once only the prairie grass swayed in the wind.
