Snapshots from Historical St. Augustine, FL
What’s so great about St. Augustine, Florida? St. Augustine is the oldest city in the U.S., founded in 1565. This year marks St. Augustine’s 449th birthday.
Ponce de Leon discovered Florida in 1513. . .King Phillip II of Spain learned that the French were poking around on the Spanish lands in the New World. Phillip II sent Pedro Menendez de Aviles to Florida with orders to remove the French and establish a Spanish post on the coast and here’s how it all went down.

For #LaborDay, we’re recognizing labor activist and organizer Mary Harris Jones – more commonly known as “Mother Jones.” After two catastrophic losses—first, of her husband & children to yellow fever and then of her home & dressmaking business in the Great Chicago Fire—Jones joined the Knights of Labor. Jones was a fearless leader and talented orator. She was enormously successful in organizing mine workers and their families around the turn of the 20th century, which earned her the label, “the most dangerous woman in America.”
