History

Orlando’s history dates back to 1838 and the height of the Seminole Wars. The U.S. Army built Fort Gatlin south of the present day Orlando City limits to protect settlers from attacks by Indians.


By 1840, a small community had grown up around the Fort. It was known as Jernigan, named after the Jernigan family, who had established the first permanent settlement in the area.

Who discovered Florida?

Juan Ponce de Leon (1460?-1521) was a Spanish explorer and soldier who was the first European to set foot in Florida. He also established the oldest European settlement in Puerto Rico and discovered the Gulf Stream (a current in the Atlantic Ocean). Ponce de Leon was searching for the legendary fountain of youth and other riches.

Here in Orlando, Florida the animal that represent florida ,and the one that you can see everywhere is the alligator .This animal benefit the humans by ,keeping clean the rivers.The alligator also cannot benefit the humans because it can eat the all animals animals,.

Another tradition is celebrate thanksgiving ,it is one of my favorite holiday because you celebrate it with your family .
