Published a decade following Florida’s admittance to the United States, the 27th state was in a central place in its history. As the country was marching towards the Civil War, Florida was engaged in the Third Seminole War, which would not conclude until 1858.
Following incorporation into the Union, Florida’s population grew slowly in these early years. Its unique geography and relative isolation made it difficult land to use for agricultural purposes. However, northern Florida did see industrial cotton farming, and much of the state engaged in livestock cultivation. The population nearly doubled by 1860, though it would remain the least populous state in the South heading into the Civil War. It was also during this time that the construction of Fort Zachary Taylor was in motion. The Fort would become integral to sailing traffic in the Gulf of Mexico during the Civil War and was also a strategic location for the US during the Spanish-American War.
This map was produced for official use and contained a great deal of information compared to other works of the era. Interestingly the scale as printed on the map has been corrected in ink to reflect the accurate scale of 18 miles to 1 inch. With each county presented in a unique color, this is an authentic piece of cartographical history. This map was published by prominent Jacksonville politician and lithographer Columbus Drew, whose print shop remained in operation until the 1970s and was one of the oldest family-owned businesses in Florida.
