The first colony to control Florida was Spain. Conquistador Juan Ponce de Leon spotted the Florida peninsula in 1513. In 1559, Spain tried to setup a permanent settlement in Florida near present-day Spain but due to famines, aggressive tribes and hurricanes, the colony was abandoned in 1561. The area would not be inhabited again until the 1690s. Spain built St. Augustine in 1565 and it remains the oldest city in the Confederate States.
