Excerpts from The Milan Standard of June 8, 1905
Marshall Baker Witter moved to Sullivan County in 1844. At that time Milan was known as the Pharsalia Post Office. The name was so hard to pronounce and so few people knew how to spell it that Mr. Witter sought an easier name.
In his youth, having read the noted Milan Decree, a treaty among certain European countries he suggested the name Milan for the city, and it was unanimously adopted. After which, by act of the legislature, approved February 9, 1859, Milan was incorporated.
R. D. Morrison was the first mayor of Milan. Mr. Witter was the second mayor, and during his second year as mayor, the legislature repealed the city charter. This act was approved by the governor February 8, 1861. From this time until the meeting of the county court in May 1867, the town was devoid of any form of government. The town remained unincorporated until 1869, when it was again incorporated.
The Milan Decree was issued on December 17, 1807 by Napoleon I of France to enforce the Berlin Decree of 1806 which had initiated the Continental System. This system was the basis for his plan to defeat the British by waging economic warfare. The Milan Decree stated that no European country was to trade with the United Kingdom
