Mobile District was an administrative division of the Spanish
colony of West Florida, which was claimed by the short-lived Republic
of West Florida, established on September 23, 1810.
Reuben Kemper led
a small force in an attempt to capture Mobile from the Spanish on
behalf of the new republic, but the expedition ended in failure.
The district was bounded on the north by the 31st parallel, on the
south by the Gulf of Mexico, on the east by the Perdido River, and on
the west by the Pearl River.
