Abstract
This collection of essays profiles courts that adjudicated disputes in Florida during its time as a Spanish province (1513–1763, 1783–1821); as two British colonies (1763–83); as a U.S. territory (1821–45); and as a Confederate state (1861–65). It also examines the use of special jurisdiction tribunals by Florida’s military, religious, black, and Indian communities.
