Tampa's Multi-Purposed Waterway: An Environmental History Of The Hillsborough River, 1950-1980, Brad Massey Jul 2022

Tampa's Multi-Purposed Waterway: An Environmental History Of The Hillsborough River, 1950-1980, Brad Massey

Florida Historical Quarterly

Hillsborough River State Park rangers Mike Evans and Brian Polk could not bear it anymore. For three weeks in February of 1981 they watched hundreds of dead fish float underneath the live oak-canopied Hillsborough River waters of their wilderness park, their bloated carcasses bobbing in the water and putrefying the air. Now, determined to find the cause of the slaughter, they boarded a canoe and paddled into Blackwater Creek, a Hillsborough River tributary. They did not make it far.


Men Of The West: Entrepreneurs And American Expansion In The East Florida Borderlands, 1812-1845, Matthew Saionz Jul 2022

Men Of The West: Entrepreneurs And American Expansion In The East Florida Borderlands, 1812-1845, Matthew Saionz

Florida Historical Quarterly

On July 16, 1844, Robert Christie, a London businessman, wrote to his distant relative, Floridian James Ormond III. "You men of the West," he observed, "certainly surprise the folk of the East by your perseverance and intrepidity of character."1 Although the particular nature of his relationship with Ormond is unclear, Christie's commentary on the character of "men of the West" stands out in a letter that, on the whole, consists of rather mundane personal matters. In this instance, Christie posits an interesting dichotomy that casts the decidedly more enterprising Americans (men of the West) opposite the British, or, more generally, …

"The Greatest Dissemblers In The World": Timucuas, Spaniards, And The Fall Of Fort Caroline, Christophe J.M. Boucher Jul 2022

"The Greatest Dissemblers In The World": Timucuas, Spaniards, And The Fall Of Fort Caroline, Christophe J.M. Boucher

Florida Historical Quarterly

At dawn, September 20, 1565, four hundred Spanish soldiers under the command of the Adelantado (military governor) Pedro Menendez de Aviles launched a surprise attack on Fort Caroline, a French outpost located in the lower reaches of what is today the St. Johns River in northern Florida. The assault could not have come at a worse time for the fort's residents. Ten days earlier, most of the fighting men in the settlement had sailed south to St. Augustine with Jean Ribault to launch a preemptive strike against Menendez, who had just landed in the area. What could have been a …

Camp Blanding In World War Ii: The Early Years, George E. Cressman, Jr. Jul 2022

Camp Blanding In World War Ii: The Early Years, George E. Cressman, Jr.

Florida Historical Quarterly

The history of Camp Blanding, a World War II training facility, has its origins in the Florida National Guard. Beginning in 1907, the Florida National Guard trained at Black Point on the St. Johns River, just southwest of Jacksonville. The War Department held an adjacent site where many ranges were located. Training involved some monthly drill periods, but focused primarily on summer encampments.


The Path To No-Fault: Florida Automobile Insurance To 1971, Karl Miller Jul 2022

The Path To No-Fault: Florida Automobile Insurance To 1971, Karl Miller

Florida Historical Quarterly

Within a short period at the start of the twentieth century, the automobile emerged in Florida, rapidly displacing other modes of transportation and dramatically transforming the state. The arrival of automobility, however, brought widespread bodily injury and property damage to Floridians. In order to help mitigate the economic cost of these accidents, automobile insurance arose. The interaction of the Florida government and the automobile insurance industry over several decades culminated in the passage of the Florida Automobile Reparations Reform Act of 1971, a landmark legislative act that comprehensively formalized Florida's handling of the automobile insurance industry. This article attempts to …

New Deal Public Works In The Florida Panhandle, 1933-1940, Robert Krause Jul 2022

New Deal Public Works In The Florida Panhandle, 1933-1940, Robert Krause

Florida Historical Quarterly

The 1930s represented a time of profound change in the South as it did across the nation. An examination of New Deal agencies and their public works in the Florida Panhandle highlights the dynamic character of federal projects and their impact upon human and natural landscapes. Federal aid in the form of public works projects in the sixteen western panhandle counties created a visibly-new world for residents. 1 The construction of roads and towns in previously-raw coastal timberlands led to a transformation of place and the emergence of not only new commercial and recreational spaces, but the development of a …

Rejecting Paradise: Tourism, Conservation, And The Birth Of The Modern Florida Cracker In The 1930, David Nelson Jul 2022

Rejecting Paradise: Tourism, Conservation, And The Birth Of The Modern Florida Cracker In The 1930, David Nelson

Florida Historical Quarterly

On May 24, 1998, a self-identified "Florida Cracker" singer-songwriter named Bobby Hicks swaggered onstage at the Florida Folk Festival armed with a guitar and an attitude. This was the forty-fifth year of the festival, a state funded event co-sponsored by the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Park Service. Since 1953 the event had been held each May at the Stephen Foster Memorial State Park in White Springs, the boyhood home town of Fred P. Cone, governor of Florida between 1937 and 1941. The first year of his term, Cone argued that a memorial to Foster should be built in …


As The General Lay Dying: The Diary Of A Confederate Officer's Florida Odyssey, R. Boyd Murphree Jul 2022

As The General Lay Dying: The Diary Of A Confederate Officer's Florida Odyssey, R. Boyd Murphree

Florida Historical Quarterly

The obituary for ninety-four-year-old Confederate veteran Charles Wood notes some episodes from his Civil War experience: captured at the Battle of Antietam, service in the defense of Charleston, South Carolina, and his presence at the surrender of General Joseph E.Johnston's army at Greensboro, North Carolina, in 1865. Missing is any mention of Wood's military service in Florida in 1861-1862. Whether the obituary writer was not aware of Wood's time in Florida or decided that period was not significant enough to include in the account of Wood's life is unknown. Like Wood's obituary, histories of the American Civil War have often …

La Florida In The Creole Imaginary: The Frontier Of New Spain In Francisco De Florencia's Historia De La Provincia (1694), Jason Dyck

Florida Historical Quarterly

"Are our oldest heroes only to be found in the colonial history of the "Thirteen Original States?""1 Jose Manuel Espinosa posed this question in 1935 in a brief article on the Jesuit Francisco de Florencia (1620-1695), one of the most prolific sacred historians of Spanish America. As a student of Herbert E. Bolton-a pioneering historian of the borderlands-Espinosa argued that Florida should be considered part of the colonial history of the United States even if it was mostly under Spanish rule until 1821.2 Since Florencia was born in Saint Augustine, Espinosa debunked what he called the "Brooke legend," the belief …
