Distinguished by four distinct regions this 1846 map of the State of Florida shows a land in a time of both growth and transformation. The significance of these regions to the history of the state is unique in that East Florida and West Florida were merged into a territory in 1822. Disputes with Spain and indigenous peoples continued throughout Middle Florida and South Florida. With the annexation of East and West Florida the territories were finally unified and Florida became the 27th state in 1845.
This was the first registered map depicting Florida as a unified state and includes borders with Georgia and Alabama showing the nation emerging into something recognizable as modern American geography. Home to Everglades National Park, the largest protected wilderness area east of the Mississippi, Florida has always been renowned as an outdoorsman?s paradise. Florida is also the site of the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum as the noted author made his home in the Florida Keys for more than a decade and wrote some of his most important works there. The museum attracts visitors from across the globe and is still home to his famous five toed cats.
