1898 · War with the Spanish

Age 2

After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.
1898 · Florida Involvement in Spanish-American War

Age 2

Florida played a critical role during the Spanish-American War. The port of Tampa saw the arrival of over 30,000 troops; this traffic resulted in the small town experiencing massive growth and becoming a city. Cuban-Americans across the state also helped with raising money and support for the war.
1914 · Florida Involvement in World War I

Age 18

Florida contributed to World War I in several ways. The state's open land and warm climate made for a great military training location. Additional technological and agricultural developments took place in Florida as well. Roughly 42,030 Floridians joined the troops during 1917 and 1918.

Name Meaning
