A fascinating historical narrative, this work focuses on the oldest European colonized city in the United States. To give the reader a clearer idea of the antiquity of the city of St. Augustine, at the end of the American Civil War in 1865, this city was already 300 years old. This book looks at the city from its first sighting by Juan Ponce de Leon to when it became part of the United States in 1821 up to the mid-1800s. Some of the topics covered include: Ribault, Laudonniere and Menendez, settlements of the Huguenots and foundation of St. Augustine, the attack on Fort Caroline (San Matteo), shipwreck of Ribault, the bloody massacre at Matanzas, Indian mission, Sir Francis Drake's attack upon the city, subjection of the Appalachian Indians, construction of the fort, sea wall, etc., attack on St. Augustine by Gov. Moore of South Carolina, difficulties with the Georgians, siege by Oglethorpe, English occupation of Florida, re-cession of Florida to Spain, erection of the parish church, transfer of Florida to the United States, American occupation, and ancient buildings. Published in 1858, the history is given from that perspective, and is complimented with a new full-name index.
