The United States and Spain agreed to terms in what became known as the Adams-Onis Treaty, signed in 1819. It was ratified in 1821 as the Transcontinental Treaty. For the U.S., the treaty gave them control over both East and West Florida. Spain lost all control of the Florida territories, but did receive $5 million in damages, as well control over Texas. American settlers were rebelling against Spanish government in Western Florida, declaring independence and allegiance to the U.S. Furthermore, General Andrew Jackson made controversial raids and attacks against the Seminoles and escaped slaves.
By gaining Florida, the U.S. controlled the entirety of the Atlantic coast and connected their territories between Louisiana and Florida throughout the Gulf of Mexico.The conquest of Florida signified America's ability to resolve foreign issues as well as take a strong stance to achieve their territorial aims. The conquest would also be a start for the strained relations with the native population for years to come, particularly during the presidency of Andrew Jackson.
