At the end of the French and Indian War in 1763, Great Britain gained control of the territory between the Appalachians and the Mississippi River except for the New Orleans area. The northern boundary of West Florida was first established at 31° north latitude.
     It was soon determined that settlement was too restricted. In 1764 Great Britain moved the boundary north to 32° 28" into the lands of the Choctaws and Creeks.
