Skipping ahead; Spain controlled Florida but then gave it to England, who split the territory into East and West Florida, the British ruled over the territory until giving it back to Spain, but only to have Spain give Florida to the United States in 1819. Florida was admitted into the United States as the 27th state in 1845, but less than 20 years later in 1861 seceded from the Union. After a period of Civil War, Florida was readmitted into the Union in 1868 and that pretty much catches us up on occupying authority. Things have been honky dorey ever since; at least on the surface.
