The Southwest Territory, or the Territory South of the River Ohio was organized May 26, 1790. A month later, John Sevier was sworn in to represent it as Congressman from North Carolina's defunct 5th district, which was exactly the same area. It received a non-voting delegate briefly from 1794-1796, and was then organized to form the State of Tennessee on June 1, 1796.
