Date

Description
A memorial written by the Legislative Council of the Territory of Florida to President James Monroe requesting Congress consider building a public road between St. Augustine and Pensacola; erecting lighthouses in St. Augustine and Pensacola; organizing the judiciary in the Territory; creating a system to handle land claims and sales so settlers would be more likely to move to Florida; and selecting Pensacola as a naval depot. The Legislative Council argued that Pensacola would be essential to protecting the United States from attacks by sea because of the city's proximity to New Orleans, the depths of Pensacola Bay and the security of Fort Barrancas.
