This chapter discusses the fourth and last governor of the Mississippi Territory, David Holmes. His placid personality helped him suppress the rancor that had previously characterized territorial policies. Holmes would be faced with three major crises over the next few years. These would be the rebellions in Spanish Florida, an uprising of the Creek Indians, and a British invasion.
