The History of Jacksonville
Jacksonville was named after the celebrated war hero, first Territorial Governor, and U.S. President, Andrew Jackson.
The most populated city in all of Florida (nearly 1 million residents) and the largest city by area (almost 900 sq. miles), Jacksonville is also the seat of Duval County.
During the Civil War, Jacksonville was an important distribution center for livestock being shipped from Florida to feed the Confederate Army. While fighting never took place in the city, the control of it changed hands between the Union and Confederate forces several times.
After the Civil War ended, Jacksonville became a popular winter resort for the rich and famous but it's popularity suffered significantly with several yellow-fever outbreaks toward the end of the 19th century. Later, in 1901 downtown Jacksonville was nearly destroyed by a kitchen fire that swept through more than 146 blocks, destroying over 2,000 buildings and leaving 10,000 residents homeless.
The 20th century proved challenging for the city and after WWII as it suffered from urban-sprawl, fiscal problems, and civil rights era conflicts.
