Mark your calendar for February 16 for Speaking of History.
Historian J. Michael Francis will present “Before Jamestown: Europeans, Africans, and Indians in La Florida, 1513-1607”. Mr. Francis explores the early history of European settlements in Florida. His focus is on Florida’s rich yet largely neglected Spanish colonization, which began nearly a century before Jamestown with St. Augustine, the first European settlement of North America established in 1513.
