History of Florida




Apart from the interest attached to Florida from its having been the first portion of the United States occu pied by Europeans, it is associated with some of the most interesting and romantic events in American history. Portions of its long and eventful history have been writ ten in the Latin, French, Spanish, and English languages. As early as 1591, De Bry published, in the Latin language, an account of the settlement of the Huguenots and the destruction of their colony, illustrated by fifty well-exe outed engravings; and many later writers have treated of the history, climate, and natural productions of Florida, among whom may be mentioned La Vega, Fernandez, Biedma, Barcia, De Vaca, Herrera, Hakluyt, Roberts, Stark, Romans, De Brahm, Bartram, Vignoles, Forbes.
