Louisiana, Missouri, Arkansaw...and a song

On this day in 1812, post Louisiana's admittance as a U.S. state, the Louisiana Territory is renamed the Missouri Territory.

As a side note On March 2, 1819, much of the Missouri Territory was designated the new Territory of Arkansaw. I bet you can guess where this is going can't you?
