Jacksonville, Florida. Drawn,
published and copyrighted by Augustus Koch.
The city of Jacksonville was established as a Spanish territory in 1791, after the British gave control of the area to Spain following the American Revolution. Originally founded as Cowford, the city stayed within Spanish control for 30 years, until conflicts between Spain and the United States resulted in the Adams Onis Treaty, giving the land to the US. In 1822 the city's name was changed to Jacksonville, after Andrew Jackson, who served as the military governor of the territory following its occupation. The city grew quickly, and became the largest city in the state.
