Florida History

In 1559, Tristan de Luna y Arellano arrived in Florida from Mexico and founded a new colony here, but two years later it was abandoned. Soon the French began to show interest in Florida, in 1564 they founded Fort Caroline on the site of modern Jacksonville, but a year later it was captured and destroyed by the Spaniards. Here, in 1565, the Spaniards built their fort, from which St. Augustine later grew – the oldest permanent European settlement in Florida and the oldest of all cities in the United States.

The Spanish maintained a presence in Florida, but in the late 17th and early 18th centuries they began to have conflicts with the French from Louisiana in the northwest and the English colonists from the Carolinas in the north. After the end of the French and Indian War in 1763, Spain ceded the rights to Florida to Great Britain, returning it to itself twenty years later, in 1783, after the defeat of the British in the American Revolutionary War. Be that as it may, the Spaniards during this period did not actually control the region, the Indians who lived here often attacked American settlements in Georgia, at the same time, the number of immigrants to Florida from the north was growing.

In 1814, during the war between the United States and Great Britain, units of the US Army under the command of the future seventh President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, ousted the British from their base in Pensacola. The so-called “First Seminole War” lasted from 1814-1819, a series of conflicts and clashes between the Seminole Indians and the US Army, which ended in victory for the Americans. In 1819, a treaty (known as the “Treaty of Adams-Onis”) was signed under which Spain ceded Florida to the United States in exchange for the United States relinquishing claims to Texas. In 1822, the US government created the Florida Territory.

After the adoption of the “Resettlement Law” by the US Congress in 1830, the gradual displacement of the Indians from the southeast of the United States (including Florida) to the west, to the “Indian Territory” (modern state of Oklahoma) began. The unwillingness of some Indians to leave their native lands led to the beginning in 1835 of the “Second Seminole War”. Seven years later, in 1842, the resistance of the Indians was crushed and almost all of them were evicted. On March 3, 1845, Florida became the twenty-seventh state of the United States.

Florida ranks third (after California and Texas) among US states in terms of population. The Sunshine State’s largest city, Jacksonville, now has about 920,000 people. Florida’s capital, Tallahassee, has about 200,000 residents. The largest metropolitan area in the state has grown around the city of Miami, with about 6,175,000 people living here.

Agriculture is one of Florida’s leading economic sectors. The “Sunshine State” produces most of the citrus fruits (primarily oranges and grapefruits) grown in the United States, and in terms of vegetable production, the state is second only to California. The state has well-developed forestry, animal husbandry and fishing. Minerals are mined in Florida, including phosphates used to make fertilizers. A very important source of income for the state is tourism, numerous nature reserves, beaches on the ocean coast and amusement parks annually attract millions of visitors to Florida.
