— Fort Pickens —Starting in the mid-1500s, the Pensacola area became a pawn in a European power struggle in the New World. Adventurers from Spain, France and Britain competed with each other to establish a foothold on the Gulf of Mexico. Spain established several sediments in the Pensacola area from 1559 to 1821. Except for brief French periods and one British colony, Spain claimed the Pensacola area until the United States acquired Florida in a treaty.
