Reproduction historic map of Jacksonville, Florida published in 1876. Florida's largest city came to be known as Jacksonville only after American settlers began to arrive in 1822, after Spain ceded the Florida Territory to the United States. The town charter was approved by the state of Florida in 1832.

Although no battles were fought in Jacksonville during the Civil War, the city was blockaded by Union troops who sought to disrupt the livestock transport from Florida to the Confederate Army that was centered there. The Union Army controlled the city from 1862 through the duration of the war.
