of Florida, 1810
One of the first maps drawn of Florida after its acquisition by the United States of America, this 1822 map (showing most of the peninsula) shows Florida's only two Counties-Escambia County and St. Johns County were both established July 21, 1821, by decree of Provisional Governor Andrew Jackson. They were separated by the Suwannee River. The road shown crossing through the present-day Alachua County area is a holdover from the years of Spanish missions and rancheros.
