During the Seminole War in 1838 the U.S army made a fort to protect the settlers from indians. A small community had grown around the fort and it was known as Jernigan. Six years later the community changed their name to Orlando. The town of Orlando was incorporated in 1875 with 85 inhabitants. There are many stories about how the name of the city was founded but the most popular was that of a soldier that saved his companies lives during the Seminole War. The Sentinel Orlando Reeves protected his man as they slept from an indian attack. Today in Orlando the population is 249,562 as of 2012 Census Bureau. That is a great difference from 85 people 1875. I think people moved here because of the weather and the theme parks that created many jobs.
