Faith, Family, and Freedom have always run deep in the South. However, following the British withdraw in 1783, the Southern colony of East Florida had become a land of oppression and corruption. Spain banned all religions other than their own rigid brand of Catholicism. Bribery bent the rules for some but many suffered. By 1812, the Floridian Revolution was on! The people of East Florida would unite against Spain and elect John Houstoun McIntosh as president of their first republic. After liberating Amelia Island, the republic would establish Florida's first constitution, legislature, and judiciary. This book details the culture, faith, and lore of the first Floridians and their revolution, which lasted from 1812 to 1819.
