 Featured Here Is A Rare And Important Map Of Florida Issued For Gentleman’s Magazine In 1763 To Describe The New Territories Of British Florida. The Map Depicts The Provinces Of East And West Florida As They Emerged Following The Treaty Of Paris That Ended The French And Indian War. The Treaty Ceded To The British Control Of Most Of The North America Territory East Of The Mississippi River. The Treaty Included An Agreement With Spain To Exchange Cuba For Florida. The British Quickly Set Up Two New Provinces Divided By The Apalachicola River. West Florida Comprised The Territory Between The Apalachicola River And The Mississippi River. East Florida Included Most Of The Peninsula Of Florida. The Division Was Intended By The British To Reduce Conflicts Between Colonists And The Native Americans Of The Region By Outlawing English Settlement (except For The Coast) West Of The Apalachicola River.
