Join us to hear J. Michael Francis, an internationally-known expert in the history of Spanish Florida and chair of the history department at USFSP. 

Dr. Francis has published numerous articles on the history of early‐colonial New Granada (modern day Colombia). Dr. Francis’ most recent book, entitled Murder and Martyrdom in Spanish Florida: Don Juan and the Guale Uprising of 1597. 

Nearly two generations before the Europeans “discovered” America, Spanish settlers, Native Americans and people from Africa and elsewhere were living together in the first permanent European settlement in the continental United States. That place was St. Augustine, Florida in 1565.
