The government organized by President James Monroe and the Congress in March 1822, for the management of the newly-acquired territory in Florida, included a one-house legislature known as the legislative council. This unicameral legislature lasted seventeen years, from 1822 until 1838. Efforts to revive the one-house body did not commence until 1967.
