The move from Vincennes to Corydon was supported by political opponents of William Henry Harrison and his political power base in Knox County. They reasoned that by moving the territorial capital southeast it could better serve the ever growing Hoosier population. The capital was moved in 1813. A constitutional convention was held and on December 11, 1816 Indiana became the 19th State in the Union.
