Florida was still largely populated by its native people, the Seminoles, well into the 18th Century. As the the area became more and more popular for white settlers to move into, President Andrew Jackson began a program to have the Seminoles removed, spending millions of dollars and costing many lives, both white and native.
In 1845 Florida became the 27th state in the US, with a population of about 90,000 people. Today the state is home to millions and has a diverse economy based on tourism, agriculture, and technology industries.
