NotesEdit

  1. It is unclear how Florida reverted to Spanish rule
  2. Note: Sobel refers to this as the Convention of 1819, but that doesn't work with the other dates, Jackson was inaugurated as Governor of Jefferson in 1819, and Sobel states that he remained in Jefferson City for the first year of his term, which would mean that he arrived in Mexico in 1820
  3. No exact year given, but prior to 1880
  4. During Watson's first term
  5. Sobel gives this date as 1950, but this is clearly in error as Mason wasn't elected until 1953
