"In 1817 (the year of statehood), Peter Van Dorn became Clerk of the Mississippi House of Representatives. Four years later the Legislature selected him to work with Dr. William Lattimore and General Thomas Hinds to design the new capital city of Jackson. Andrew Jackson and Hinds had negotiated the treaty with the Choctaw Indians in which 5 million acres in central and western Mississippi were purchased and opened to settlement.
