Last year's Florida Memory blog post featured "The United States Formally Takes Control of Florida (July 17, 1821)." From their blog:

"The formal transfer of Florida took place on July 17, 1821. An exchange of flags occurred first at St. Augustine on July 10, and then on July 17 at Pensacola. Andrew Jackson became governor of the newly created territory of Florida."
