With the exception of the East-Florida Gazette in the 1780s and a small press at Fernandina in 1817, Florida had no colonial newspapers. Even in the immediate aftermath of cession in 1821, only a few newspapers served Florida. Historic News Accounts of Florida consists of stories and reports about Florida gathered together by the Goza and Mickler families and donated to the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History. All are from non-Florida newpapers and cover events in Florida from 1762 – 1885. The articles pre-dating the Territorial Period help to “fill in” the journalistic record at a time when there was no Florida press, while the articles from after 1821 both complement and supplement news published in Florida.
The newspapers in the Florida Digital Newspaper Library come from libraries and other organizations throughout the State of Florida. The majority are from the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History at the George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida, which holds the largest collection of newspapers in the State.
