The highest natural point in the city of Miami is in Coconut Grove, near the bay, along the Miami Rock Ridge at 24 feet (7.3 m) above sea level.
The Miami area was better known as "Biscayne Bay Country" in the early years of its growth.
When World War II began, Miami, well-situated on the southern coast of Florida, became a base for US defense against German submarines.
The war brought an increase in Miami's population; by 1940, 172,172 people lived in the city.
In 1836, the US built Fort Dallas as part of its development of the Florida Territory and attempt to suppress and remove the Seminole.
The Miami area subsequently became a site of fighting during the Second Seminole War.
