On this week’s Florida History Podcast we discuss Governor William Moseley.
Current Florida Governor Ron DeSantis embraced the motto “Let Us Alone” in introducing his new Florida Guard idea.
On this edition of The Florida History Podcast, Robert Buccellato and Kartik Krishnaiyer discuss Democratic Governor William Dunn Moseley who originated the motto and used it on his personal state flag. Moseley was a leading establishment Democrat who became the state’s first Governor after statehood winning a close contest with former Territorial Governor, Richard Keith Call, a Whig. Moseley was a Jacksonian Democrat, Call more of a Clay Whig, as Florida politics resembled broader US politics at the time.
