In addition, the city built a levee system stretching from the bluff southward to protect the riverfront and low-lying agricultural areas.

It was ruled by seven different governments: French, British, and Spanish in the colonial era, West Floridian (West Florida), United States territory and state, Confederate, and United States again.
