Florida Historical Legal Documents is a growing collection of primary source materials surveying changes in Florida law from the time it became a territory in 1822 through 1845 when Florida became a state. The collection includes the complete Florida Territorial Laws, a time capsule of Florida history documenting the establishment of the territorial court system based on British Common Law as of July 4, 1776. Other materials in the collection offer supplementary information about the legal, political and social history of Florida before and after its Territorial period. Most materials, including Florida Territorial Laws, can be searched in full-text; others are available only as page-images.
