Indiana Modern History

During the 1812-15 war between the United States and Great Britain, several battles took place in Indiana Territory, including the Siege of Fort Garrison (which is considered the first victory of the American army in this war), the Battle of Fort Wayne, and the Battle of Mississineva. Basically, the Americans fought with the Indians who supported the British, so after the US victory in the war, the natives completely lost any influence in Indiana.

In 1813, the capital of the territory was moved to the city of Corydon. Almost immediately after the end of the war, the people and legislators of Indiana began preparations for becoming a full state. In 1816, a census was taken in Indiana, a Constituent Assembly convened, and the first Constitution was adopted. On December 11, 1816, the United States Congress voted to recognize Indiana as the nineteenth state of the United States. In 1825, Indianapolis, located in the center of the state, became the capital of Indiana.

The “Hoosier State,” as Indiana is called, developed rapidly, soon earning the nickname “America’s Crossroads.” In 1829, the federally funded “National Road” reached Indianapolis, connecting Maryland with Illinois and passing through Pennsylvania, Virginia (now West Virginia), Ohio, and Indiana. In the thirties of the XIX century, the “Michigan Road” was built, connecting the city of Madison, located in the southeast of the state, through the capital Indianapolis with Michigan City on Lake Michigan.

Traditionally, Indiana was a trade route from the Great Lakes to the lower Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. In 1832, construction began on a canal linking Lake Erie with the Ohio River and onward to St. Louis in Missouri and New Orleans in Louisiana. The canal, known as the Wabash Erie, was opened in 1842 and became the longest (over seven hundred kilometers) shipping canal in the United States. It was an important transportation artery in the Midwest of the United States until the 1980s, when it lost its importance due to the development of the railroad.

The first railroad in Indiana was built at the end of the thirties of the century before last (between the cities of Shelbyville and Indianapolis), in 1847 the “steel highway” connected the state capital and Madison on the Ohio River. By the beginning of the sixties of the XIX century, a developed system of railways was created in the state, which significantly contributed to the development of the economy.

During the American Civil War, most Indiana residents supported the northerners. One hundred and sixty-five regiments were formed in the state, in which more than two hundred thousand soldiers served, most of them volunteers. Indiana was also one of the major suppliers to the Union Army.
