Here are five random maps that show Florida (surrounded by Cuba and the Bahamas) in different stages from the late 1500s (above) until about the early 1900s (all the way below).

As you can see, the precise shape of the state wasn’tΒ even close until the early 1800s and then really started taking actual shape in the mid 1800s.
