Thirty-two miles northeast of Jacksonville, Amelia Island measures 2.5 miles wide by 13 miles long. Named by the English to honor King George II's daughter, the island was settled by the Spanish in 1566. Originally inhabited by Tamaqua Indians, eight flags of sovereignty have flown over the island, including French, English, Spanish, Mexican and the Confederacy during the Civil War. In fact, it is the only location in the history of the United States to have flown eight flags. View more
