I was there about a month ago, having flown into Orlando for the wedding of my nephew. I arrived near closing time, and was only able to walk around the outside of the fort.
But I had just before came from Ft Matanzas, about ten miles south, party closed due to hurricane damage. The next day I went to Ft Caroline, outside of Jacksonville.
Ft Caroline was French. They send a raiding party to the Spanish Ft Matanzas, but the party got upended in a squall. When the Spanish discovered that, they took those French soldiers captive and slaughtered most of them. (Matanzas literally means ‘slaughter’—landmarks, businesses, and roads all around that area are named Matanzas this or Matanzas that.) The docent at Ft Caroline told me the Spanish commander sent a letter to the French king saying the prisoners were killed, not because they were French, but because they were Protestant. The few captured French soldiers that were Catholic were spared.
Thanks Space Merchant, I needed that!
It is so much fun watching snowflake liberal's heads explode all over the ceiling at the slightest thing that is actually funny!
It is like watching the movie "Mars Attacks", when granny is listening to the radio in the nursing home, and yodeling comes on the programming.
CNN was once my very favorite Cable News Network, for their superb coverage of the First Gulf War, but now they are pathetic, and a comedy show of utter and total cluelessness..
If they did not have contracts to be in most of USA Airports, supplying equipment and programming, I suspect ONLY Democrats who consider it the "Clinton News Network", (.. which CNN is ...) would watch it.
I downloaded the CNN video from the YouTube link ... Don Lemon's reaction is PRICELESS!
One can only open someones eyes if they are really searching for the truth. I apologize if I have become too skeptical about the motives of people who contribute on this forum. There is enough evidence here to suggest that I may be correct.
Jesus said they will know my disciples because the love among them. What kind of love? The love of Jesus which is self-sacrificing love. Yes, I am prepared to give my life for my brothers. This is love in action.
During the Rwanda genocide brothers hid other families from the other tribe under their homes in holes..... if they were found out they faced immediate death by machetti or gun.... this is self-sacrificing love amongst our African brothers.
Do the other churches in USA teach this kind of love?
I bet your grear great grandmother who lived then (if she lived in USA) was a great racist.... just indicating that historical context does matter.
