Pirates, Presidents, Conquistadors & More.
Join me and Col. John Eidsmoe as we explore the ancient sites of northeastern Florida. We will tell the stories on location of the Fort at St. Augustine and the French Huguenot colony at Jacksonville, Ft. Caroline. We will remember the courageous Reformed settlers who brought the Gospel to the natives of the region and their subsequent extermination by the Spanish for the capital crime of rejecting the Catholic Church and following the Calvinist Reformation.
We will examine the lives and times of fearless conquistadors, notorious pirates, superstitious explorers seeking the fountain of youth, the ferocious no-holds-barred Scots-Irish General Andrew Jackson who seized Florida and would not give it back, and the natives who suffered through all the invasions and fought a war with the United States that was never concluded!
Our tour culminates at one of the most interesting Sesquicentennial Civil War reenactments of 2014 at the scene of the largest battle fought in Florida, the Battle of Olustee.
Space is limited so register today for a weekend to remember on this Landmarks in History tour!
