The Spaniard South, Part 2: Florida and the Gulf

After the Revolutionary War, the new American republic still had to deal with control and border issues presented mostly by the Spaniard administrators of Florida and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas.  French and British also still played a part.  The southern woodlands, swamps, and New Orleans on the Mississippi River changed hands and eventually large parts ended up in the lap of President Thomas Jefferson.  This is the second part of a 3-part video about geographical and social pressures on the frontier leading up to the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery expedition West of the Mississippi.  (best if viewed on large screen computer or tv, HD, 18 min.)
