His Memory At- Reunion
pirit of Great- Man Militant in Con

Jacksonville, Fla.-Confederate so1
diers, the world over, revere the name
of Andrew Jackson, and in view of the
fact that their next reunion is to be
held in the only city in the South that
was Almed in honor of that great and
brave man, his services in freeing
Flor'da from the blight of IiadlAr bar.
barism will be of Interest.
Jacksonville was named for Gen.
Andrew Jackson as a compliment and
mark of appreciation far services he
rendered to civli:iz.l in the Semi
nole War. There could have been no
progress or clvi::=t on in Florida but
for the work of Andrew Jrckson. Con
ditons in this te:iLory in 1S18, nearly
a hundred yeirs ago, demanded the
servkes of a brave and resolute man.
Gen Jitkson was selected by the gov
ern-er.t as the one nan above al
others to head the movement against
the Seminole Indians, who had beet
tezrorsizng the terr.tory for several
years and committing.atroclties of the
most brutal character.
; la March. 1818, Gen. Jackson was
ordered to the site of the Seminole
War. He Invaded East Florida, and
in a campaign of lers than. six weeks
erushed these Indians. It is related

pir this act he was severely censured
by his government. Howev'er, the
aked fact Is that "Old Hickor-y" was
more eourageous than the men who
:wer conducting the affairs of state.
Early In May, 1818, Gen. Jackson
*ioned his campaign against the Sem
inoles in East Florida. He had comn
gietely broken their power and run
themout of the territory. They caused
a. more serious trouble.
.During his campaign in East Florida
Gen. Jacksn obtained satisfactipry ev
Mdemce ebat Spanis of~cers at pensa
cola were in sympathy with the In
diens. He promptly decided to march
against them and teach them a lesson.
The Spaniish governor of West Elorida,
learning of Gen. Jackson's purpose,
sent him a written protest against his.
invasion. This protest is, now on file
- among the Jackson documents In
- ehang of the Tennessee Eis~orical
gedety at Nashville. The protest was
-delivered to.Gen. Jackson near 'Pena
.ela en Mayl2, but ithadno effect on
1hat determined man. In reply he sent
s, peremptory demand for the imme
lists surrender of Pensacola and Bar
sancas. Japhkson advanced immediate
* bon Pensacola and possessed It. Two
days later the Barrancas garrison
espitulated, were received as prison
ers of war and sent to Havana.
Having thus snatched both East and
1West Florida from the Indians and
Spaniards, Gen. Jackson at once pro
eeeded to establish a provisional gov
erhment under the stars and stripes.
Having accomplished this, he return
ed to Tennessee. then his home.
In 1822 a number of pioneers held
a meeting here and decided to start
the work of building a town. The ,il
lag. was then known as the Cow Ford,
a name given to It by the Indians.
After perfecting an organisation, the
incorporation unfurled the banner of

AND THE REUNION
Veterans Will Find a Modern,
Many Points of Historic Interest Tc
Be Visited By Survivors of Gray
Army During Week.
Jacksonville, Fla.-When the Con
federate veterans and their friends as
semble here for their 24th annual re
union, they will be introduced to a City
and community, pioud of the present
and loyal to the ideals of the old South.
Making Jacksonville the hub of a
wheel twenty-five miles in diameter,
a territory is covered rich In historic
associations and interest and at the
same time a fit exponent of all that
is progressive in the Southern States.
Jacksonville is a city of 85,000 popu
lation, with handsome business blocks,
modern skyscrapers, commodious ho
tels and residence sections that com
pare favorably with the best in the
country. The city's business has
grown into large proportions, embraO
ing every line known to a modern
city. Jacksonville of to-day Is in all
respects a thriving center of trade
and commerce, much of its commerce
going across the seas into foreign
countries on ocean steamships. Its
transportation facilities are superb,
both by rail and water. Railroads
feeding the great Florida Peninsula
center here. Thousands of tourists
and uncounted tons of freight pass
through the city and port every year,
the one hunting health and pleasure,
the other scattering out over the civil
ized world to do its part in supplying
the demands of the consumers of the
And while the visitors are enjoying
this view and prospect of modern
business and community thrift, they
wiN be given an opportunity to look
down the past three hundred and fifty
years. All of this territory was in dis
pute three and a half centuries ago
between the French and Spanish, with
the wild Indian holding the balance of
, ower between.the combatants. The
Frenchman and the Spaniard both laid
claim to the Florida territory. Which
-was first to discover it is a matter
over which historians differ, but it is
well authenticated that the first white
men to set foot upon the soil now cov
ered by Jacksonville were Frenchmen
under Rene Laudonnere.
The first white man to enter the
mouth of the St. Johns river was
Jean Ribault, in command of a com
pany of Huguenots, who had left
France because of religious persecu
tions. He made his landing on May1
1, 1562, fifty years after the landing
of Ponce de Leon at a point to the
south of Jacksonville. Some histori
ans are of the opinion that Ponce de
Leon sailed as far north as the mouth
ol the St. Johns, but the weight of
evidence is against this opinion. If
he were here he left no trace. The
evidence is that he did not travel in
a direction from his original landing
that would have brought him to the
vicinity of Jacksonville. It is thor
oughly established that Ribault en
tered the mouth of the St. Johns river
May 1, 1562, and sailed up the river
some miles' to a bluff, where he erect
ed a stone column on which was in
scribed the arms of France. But Ri
bault did not ascend the river as high
as Jacksonville. He went from the
mouth of the river to Port Royal, S. C.
In 1664, one year after the depar
ture of Ribault, Rene Laudonnere,
who had-been with Ribault on the
first expedition, came to the mouth of
the St. Johns with another colony of
Huguenots, and- ascended the river as
far as the present site of Jacksonville,
camping probably en the south side of
the river on territory now covered
by South Jacksonville. These were
the first white men to penetrate the
eountry above the mouth of the river.
In honor of the day of discovery, May
1, Ribault gave the river the name of
May, and thIs stood until the Span
iards whipped out the French, some
years later. The Spaniards called it
the River San Mateo at first, but later
changed Its name to San Juan. From
this It finally became the St. Johns.
Old Fort Caroline was situated at St.
John's bluff some miles below the
city of Jacksonville. No sign of this
historic fort remains, not even a slab
to commemorate its mournful story.
During the reunion, steamboat ex
cursions will be run to all these points
of historic Interest on the. St. Johns
river. It Is but twenty-seven miles
from Jacksonville to the mouth of the
St. Johns, where the government has
constructed, with the aid of Jackson
ville, and the State of Florida, a sys
tem of jetties, deepened the water on
the bar and otherwise protected navi
gation. In passing between Jackson
-vile and the jetties, the visitor will
have no trouble locating the sites of
old forts that were erectel nearly four
hundred years ago by the French and
Spanish. The trip is one of the most
delightful In the Southern States.
While Jacksonville has not adver
tised itself as a large manufacturing
city, of recent years many large indus
trial plants have been established, giv
ing emiployment to 5,000 wage-earners
and turniing out $14.000,000 to $15,000,
000 worth of products per annum. In
variety of products, the city makes a
