The Spanish American Pirates and Privateers Who Tried to Conquer Florida

The Spanish American Pirates and Privateers Who Tried to Conquer Florida Online

Two hundred years ago, in the summer of 1817, a group of pirates and privateers invaded Amelia Island, Florida, then still a Spanish colony, in hopes of striking a blow for the Spanish American Revolutions. The presentation will tell the stories of these revolutionary rogues and their leaders, how they planned to free Florida from Spanish rule, and how the United States intervened to stop them.

Presented By: David Head, Scholar
