Florida Land: Records of the Tallahassee and Newnansville General Land Office, Alvie L. Davidson


8 Florida Land: Records of the Tallahassee and Newnansville General Land Office
Alvie L. Davidson
(1989), 2008, 5x8, paper, alphabetical, 320 pp, Heritage Books
This reference should prove invaluable to researchers tracing land ownership in Florida because it provides abstracts of claims to lands in the unsettled Florida wilderness between 2 June 1825 and 20 January 1892. The files abstracted here are those of persons who were purchasing land, or receiving land under the Florida Armed Occupation Act of 1842, or the Homestead Act of 1862. The alphabetically arranged entries give the name of the claimant, date of the claim, legal description of the property, and the file number. In many of the approximately 7,300 abstracts, co-claimants, trustees, assignees, or previous grantees are also named. Copies of the original files can be ordered from the Bureau of Land Management, and may provide additional information, such as vital statistics, places of residence, etc. in some cases.

Southern Boots and Saddles: The Fifteenth Confederate Cavalry C.S.A., First Regiment Alabama and Florida Cavalry, 1863-1865, Arthur E. Green


9 Southern Boots and Saddles: The Fifteenth Confederate Cavalry C.S.A., First Regiment Alabama and Florida Cavalry, 1863-1865
Arthur E. Green
(2005), 2007, 8x11, paper, alphabetical, 230 pp, Heritage Books
This book contains transcribed military service records of 1,611 dedicated, brave Southern men who served with the Fifteenth Confederate Cavalry. These men, for the most part, came from the Gulf Coast of Northwest Florida, South Alabama and Southeast Mississippi. Alphabetically arranged entries identify the men associated with the regiment and contain varying amounts of military and personal data. A short history of the regiment and its movements precede the service records. The story of the regiment and men of the Fifteenth Confederate Cavalry-First Regiment Alabama and Florida Cavalry-is preserved on these pages. The Fifteenth Confederate Cavalry was organized and formed in 1863 from existing smaller, but experienced, Alabama and Florida Cavalry units. The first muster roll was on September 12, 1863, at Camp Halls Mill, Alabama, west of Mobile. This Southern cavalry regiment rode with and under the command of Colonel Henry "Harry" Maury. They served and fought along the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Pensacola, Florida, and were engaged at the Battles of Spanish Fort and Blakeley, Alabama, in April 1865. They were surrendered in May of 1865 as part of Lieutenant General Richard Taylor's Confederate Army of Alabama, Mississippi and East Louisiana.This is the author's fourth book on Confederate regiments with Alabama ties.

11 The History and Antiquities of the City of St. Augustine, Florida, Founded A.D. 1565. Comprising Some of the Most Interesting Portions of the Early History of Florida
George R. Fairbanks
(1858), 2003, paper, index, 221 pp, Heritage Books
A fascinating historical narrative, this work focuses on the oldest European colonized city in the United States. To give the reader a clearer idea of the antiquity of the city of St. Augustine, at the end of the American Civil War in 1865, this city was already 300 years old. This book looks at the city from its first sighting by Juan Ponce de Leon to when it became part of the United States in 1821 up to the mid-1800s. Some of the topics covered include: Ribault, Laudonniere and Menendez, Settlements of the Huguenots and foundation of St. Augustine, the Attack on Fort Caroline (San Matteo), Shipwreck of Ribault, the Bloody Massacre at Matanzas, Indian Mission, Sir Francis Drakes attack upon the city, Subjection of the Appalachian Indians, Construction of the fort, sea wall, etc., Attack on St. Augustine by Gov. Moore of South Carolina, Difficulties with the Georgians, Siege by Oglethorpe, English occupation of Florida, Re-cession of Florida to Spain, Erection of the Parish Church, Transfer of Florida to the United States, American occupation, and Ancient buildings. Published in 1858, the history is given from that perspective, and is complimented with a new fullname index.

Florida and World War II: A Personal Recollection, Jim Wiggins


12 Florida and World War II: A Personal Recollection
Jim Wiggins
2008, 5x8, paper, index, 206 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Florida held a unique position in World War II, an involvement that went far beyond the enrollment of 250,000 young men in the Armed Services. The Sunshine State was more totally immersed in World War II than any other state, not only because of its precarious geographical location as a peninsula between the Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean with seaports to facilitate shipping, but also because of ideal climate and flat land that would serve well as bases for military personnel. Indeed, Florida would be called upon to play a highly significant role unlike any other in the United States. The author, a freelance writer and photographer, shares stories about watch towers, scrap drives, and rationing; about an everyday life that included squadrons flying practice maneuvers overhead, political posters everywhere and convoys on highways. He also discusses Nazi sub attacks off of Florida's shores, prison camps, and "sniff kits." A wealth of photographs; a list of Florida bases; and an index to names, places and subjects completes this excellent work.

They include name of owner, improved acreage, unimproved acreage, cash value of the farm, value of farm implements and machinery, and value of livestock. This volume includes the counties of Alachua, Benton, Calhoun, Columbia, Dade, Duval, Escambia, Franklin, Gadsden, Hamilton, Hillsborough, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Levy, Madison, Marion, Monroe, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington. A list of the other types of information available on the agricultural census, and a surname index add to the value of this work.

Too Late For Blood: Florida Volunteers in the Mexican War, Russell D. James


17 Too Late For Blood: Florida Volunteers in the Mexican War
Russell D. James
2006, 5x8, paper, index, 152 pp, Heritage Books
When the Mexican War broke out in 1846, American men from every state but three joined the volunteer forces heading for Mexico. Floridians did not initially send troops to the front. Floridians had fought the Second Seminole War and still had concerns about the Seminole Indians on the peninsula. Two companies remained in Florida to protect the frontier against another Seminole uprising. Three companies went to Mexico, but it was too late for them to give or take blood in battle. This book is intended as a starting point for study of both the history of Florida during this period and as a continuation of Mexican War scholarship. The stories of the five volunteer companies from Florida are enhanced with appendices that include muster rolls, deaths, discharges, pensions and bounty land warrants.
