West Florida

In 1810, the people in the territory known as Spanish West Florida rose up against their colonial overlords and declared the short-lived Republic of West Florida. The inhabitants of this region–which lay between the Mississippi and Pearl Rivers and north of Lakes Pontchartrain and Maurepas–soon agitated for annexation into the United States, which President James Madison soon approved. Among the many who rose up against the Spanish were Irish immigrants, and the men of the Republic of West Florida Division honor their memory. The Republic of West Florida Division currently serves the needs of the Irish in Tangipahoa and western St. Tammany Parishes.
