Early Records of Florida – A Repository of Basic Documents 

This collection comprises the Florida portion of Early State Records as microfilmed by the Library of Congress in the 1940s and subsequently digitized by the Law Library Microform Consortium (LLMC) under a grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). Florida’s records include landmark documents such as the 1810 Journal of the West Florida Convention, which backed a secession of part of Spanish West Florida from Spain; the 1812 Constitution of East Florida, promulgated by authority of the Regency Government of Spain; Florida’s 1839 Constitution; its Secession Convention, which affiliated it with the Confederate cause in the Civil War; and the 1868 Journal of the Constitutional Convention that reestablished its post-war legal framework.
