Roman Britain And Anglo-Saxon Britain: Cultural Difference, Levi Michael Berg 2021 Olivet Nazarene University

Roman Britain And Anglo-Saxon Britain: Cultural Difference, Levi Michael Berg

Scholar Week 2016 - present

A role of historians is to distinguish between cultural groups. They must investigate the practices and artifacts in order to create a model. This model should accurately explain events such as celebrations, war, or in the case of Britain, cultural intertwining and invasion. Britain is an interesting case to study in the Middle Ages because of the amount of intermixing that takes place. Within the time period of a few hundred years, Britain had seen multiple different distinct people groups inhabit the island. This paper will focus on the major cultural differences of the two earliest invasions, the Romans and ...

Florida Seen Through The Eyes Of Nineteenth Century Travellers, Benjamin F. Rogers 2021 University of Central Florida

Florida Seen Through The Eyes Of Nineteenth Century Travellers, Benjamin F. Rogers

Florida Historical Quarterly

During the first half of the nineteenth century, there were published both in this country and abroad a great number of books written by travellers in all parts of the United States, and especially in the South. As one Southern author observed in 1860: “The fashion has been for several years . . . to write books about the South. Englishmen, Frenchmen, Down-Eastern men, the Bloomer style of men, as well as countless numbers of female scribblers, have not ceased to drum upon the public tympanum (almost to deafness, indeed) in praise or blame - generally the latter - of Southern peculiarities, social habits, manners ...


Florida In 1643, As Seen By Its Governor, Charles W. Arnade 2021 University of Central Florida

Florida In 1643, As Seen By Its Governor, Charles W. Arnade

Florida Historical Quarterly

Throughout much of the Spanish era Florida was a poor colony and a recurrent headache for Spain. To be stationed or live in this land was to be far from any civilization. For example: on August 29, 1644, Governor Damian de Vega Castro y Pardo wrote the King that for eight long years no subsidy or financial help [situado had reached the province, and that for more than twenty months not a bit of food had entered through Saint Augustine. Vega warned the King that the city would soon perish of starvation if aid was not forthcoming.

David Selby Walker: Educational Statesman Of Florida, Nita Katharine Pyburn

Florida Historical Quarterly

David S. Walker was a leader of distinguished ability during the formative years of the government of Florida. In addition to practicing his profession as a lawyer, he was at all times actively engaged in assuming his responsibilities as a citizen in his home community, Tallahassee, and in his State, holding various positions of trust, including elected and appointive offices. At various times he was intendant (mayor) of Tallahassee, a member of the Florida House of Representatives, of the Florida State Senate, Register of Lands and ex-officio Superintendent of Schools for the State during the 1850’s, Associate Justice of ...


Andrew Jackson Vs. The Spanish Governor, Herbert J. Doherty, Jr. 2021 University of Central Florida

Andrew Jackson Vs. The Spanish Governor, Herbert J. Doherty, Jr.

Florida Historical Quarterly

For more than one hundred years Andrew Jackson has been to writers of American history an exciting, inspiring, controversial, or shameful figure - according to the varying beliefs of those many writers. This writer, in recent issues of this Quarterly, has reexamined Jackson’s Florida career in two articles which were suggested by several previously unpublished Jackson letters. Several new letters coming to light have suggested a more detailed look at some of the ground covered in those earlier articles, specifically, the sources of hostility between Jackson and the last Spanish governor of West Florida, Jose Callava. Some historians have looked ...

Archeological Excavations In The Courtyard Of Castillo De San Marcos, St. Augustine, Florida, J. C. Harrington

Florida Historical Quarterly

The recorded history of the fortifications at St. Augustine, Florida, begins on the day the Spaniards, under Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles, landed at the Timucua Indian village of Seloy in the late summer of 1565. A large Indian communal house was turned over to the newcomers, who immediately set to work throwing up earthworks around the aboriginal structure.

Archeology Of The Tampa Bay Area, Ripley P. Bullen 2021 University of Central Florida

Archeology Of The Tampa Bay Area, Ripley P. Bullen

Florida Historical Quarterly

The Tampa Bay region includes the west coast of Florida from Tarpon Springs to Sarasota, or the three counties of Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Manatee; and its archeology is better known than that of any comparable region of the State. Nevertheless, in spite of the large amount of work which has been done on this area, there are many lacunae in our data. We are just beginning to glimpse the dynamics involved, and much work is required before we will have an adequate understanding of the prehistory of this area.


Florida History In Spanish Archives: Reproductions At The University Of Florida, Charles W. Arnade 2021 University of Central Florida

Florida History In Spanish Archives: Reproductions At The University Of Florida, Charles W. Arnade

Florida Historical Quarterly

Spanish records distinguish themselves for their great length; the flow of words seems endless, the innumerable details not always to the point. They lack any businesslike method. Although every imaginable problem is discussed, if one reads the Spanish archives of Florida he is amazed to find that, for instance, little or nothing is said about the attractiveness of the country. Rarely one tells about her beautiful beaches, her waving palms, her unexcelled climate and the fertility of her soil. The Spanish records of Florida are not recommended for use by present-day chambers of commerce except to give a historical flavor ...

“Southern Rights” And Yankee Humor: A Confederate-Federal Jacksonville Newspaper, Valentine B. Chamberlain

Florida Historical Quarterly

During the War for Southern Independence, Jacksonville was occupied by Federal forces several times for varying periods. On October 5, 1862, the town was seized for the second time, having just been abandoned hurriedly by most of the inhabitants who had not already left their homes earlier in the war.


Andrew Jackson’S Cronies In Florida Territorial Politics, Herbert J. Doherty Jr. 2021 University of Central Florida

Andrew Jackson’S Cronies In Florida Territorial Politics, Herbert J. Doherty Jr.

Florida Historical Quarterly

In Pensacola, an ancient Spanish village but then the boomtown capital of West Florida, the fifth day of October, 1821, was greeted with an unusual air of excitement. Along Palafox and Zaragoza streets, named long since for the Spanish hero General Palafox because of his heroic defense of Zaragoza, curious townsfolk gathered in gossiping knots around the Government House and public market, both fronting on Plaza Ferdinand VII. In Austin’s Tavern, the servants clearing away the remains of the great farewell party of the previous night, must have furtively gathered around the windows and peered expectantly into the street ...
