Dakota Territory, 1861–1889
Dakota Territory was an organized incorporated territory of the United States that existed from March 2, 1861, to November 2, 1889, when what was left of the territory was admitted to the Union as the states of North Dakota and South Dakota.

When Dakota Territory was formed in 1861, it included large parts of present day Montana and Wyoming. By 1868, it had been reduced to what is now North Dakota and South Dakota. In 1872, territorial counties were formed.

Yankton was the capital of Dakota Territory from 1861 to 1883, when it was moved to Bismarck.
