On this week’s Florida History Podcast, we set the stage for a sweeping narrative in the coming weeks on the American Revolutionary War in Florida, by discussing the period of British rule prior to the initiation of hostilities.
We discuss the re-population of St Augustine, Pensacola’s importance, the founding of New Smyrna Beach, the early citrus industry and the St Johns River in this episode of our Albion Florida series.
