Fort Caroline, the Search for America's Lost Heritage

ByRichard Thornton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book is the most comprehensive study of the 16th century history of the South Atlantic Coast, ever published. The project began in early 2007 as an effort by a small group of Native American researchers to obtain a more accurate history of the South Atlantic Coast's indigenous peoples. It ended up in 2014, turning the history books upside down. The Spanish built at least 10 forts on the South Atlantic Coast in the 1560s and 1570s. The first governor of Florida, Pedro Menendez, wrote the King of Spain that the original location of St. Augustine was at 31 degrees latitude. That's St. Andrews Sound, GA. St. Augustine was moved to its current location the next year because of the large number of hostile Natives in Georgia. In 1564, French colonists probably did not build Fort Caroline on the St. Johns River in Florida, but in Georgia. There was a large French fort on an island near present day Knoxville, TN several decades before the English arrived. The rest is history.
