Message from the President of the United States, Transmitting a Memorial of the Legislative Council of Florida, 1823
- 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.

"My Recollections of the Confederate War" by Sylvanus M. Hankins, ca. 1900
- 1900 (circa)
- Sylvanus M. Hankins' recollections of his experiences as an enlisted Confederate soldier during the American Civil War in Florida. Hankins was a private in Company D of the 1st Florida Reserve Regiment for the Confederacy which was one of the units that fought at the Battle of Natural Bridge in March 1865. Hankins begins by discussing Florida's secession in 1861, when Hankins was 14 years old. He recalls how Floridians intially reacted to the threat of war; the raising of military units; the death of his cousin resulting from combat wounds and imprisonment; the imprisonment of women and children and the burning of their homes if their husbands, fathers or brothers were suspected of deserting; the shooting of deserters; the wartime treatment of African-Americans; Hankins' enlistment at age 16; escorting prisoners to Andersonville; the Battle of Natural Bridge; and other wartime events. The date of these recollections is unknown.
