Mississippi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2806 words)
The Mississippi Territory was organized on April 7, 1798, from territory ceded by Georgia and South Carolina; it was later twice expanded to include disputed territory claimed by both the U.S. and Spain.
As with all other U.S. States and the federal government, Mississippi's government is based on the separation of legislative, executive and judicial power.
Unlike the federal government, but like many other U.S. States, most of the heads of major executive departments are elected by the citizens of Mississippi rather than appointed by the governor.
