The Experience of a Loss

Spain, Florida, and the United States (1783–1833)

La Florida

The relations between Spain and the United States from 1783 to 1833 were complex. The United States had initiated its history as a nation with strong republican and expansionist values in its political system while the Hispanic monarchy, anchored in the structures of the Ancien Régime, saw how its presence in almost all of the Americas was disappearing. In this text, which analyzes the complex history of Florida in that period, the differences between the principles of the American republican diplomacy in contrast to those of the Catholic monarchy will be explored as one of the principal reasons to explain the territorial growth of the United States and the loss of Florida and of practically all of the Spanish territories in America.
