Marianna is a city in Jackson County, Florida, United States. The population was 6,230 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Jackson County and is home to Chipola College. The official nickname of Marianna is "The City of Southern Charm."HistoryMarianna was founded in 1828 and named the county seat the following year, supplanting the earlier settlement of Webbville, which soon dissolved and no longer exists.It is the final resting place of the Confederate governor of Florida, Governor John Milton, and the scene of a minor Civil War battle between a small home guard of about 150 boys, old men, and wounded soldiers, and a contingent of approximately 900 Federal troops.Governor Milton, who owned the Milton Plantation and hundreds of slaves, was the governor of Florida during the Civil War years. Governor Milton was vehemently against the Confederate States of America reuniting with the United States of America. He vowed that he would rather die than see the Confederates reunite with the Unionist states.In late spring 1865, as federal troops were preparing to make control of Tallahassee, Governor Milton received word the Civil War had ended and that Florida would, once again, be part of the United States. After receiving this news, Milton died of a gunshot wound. Historians relate that Milton committed suicide.
