Summary:
Eric Mongar posits that culturally, historically, and environmentally Florida is more Latin than American, and explores an argument that Fort Caroline - generally believed to have been located in Jacksonville along the St. Johns River - may have actually been in Georgia as a lens to examine the influence the Spanish had on the state. Starting with the Fort's original founding by the French, Mongar follows the evidence of its development through the work of Senator Charles Bennett in the 20th century to preserve the area.
