AND THE REUNION
Veterans Will Find a Modern,

Be Vltlted By Survivor* of Cr?y
Army During Week.
Jacksonville. Fla. ? When tto Con
federate veterans and tbelr friends as
semble here for their 24th annual re
union, thejr will be Introduced to a city
and community, ptoud of the present
and loyal to the Ideals of the old South.
Making Jacksonville the hub of A
wheel twentyflve miles la diameter,
a territory Is covered rich In historic
associations and interest and at the
same time a fit exponent of all that
Is progressive In the Southern States.
Jacksonville Is a city of 86,040 popu
lation, with handsome business blocks,
modern skyscrapers, commodious ho
tels and residence sections that com
pare favorably with the best la the
Country. The city's business has
grown Into large proportions, embrac
ing every Une known to a modern
city. Jacksonville of to-day is In all
respects a thriving center of trade
and commerce, much of Its commerce
going across the seas Into foreign
countries on ocean steamships. Its
transportation facilities are superb,
both by rail and water. Railroads
feeding the great Florida Peninsula
center here. Thousands of tburists
and uncounted tons of freight pass
through thfe city and port every yesr,
the one huqtlhg health and pleasure,
the other scstterlng out over the civil
ised wcrld to do Its part In supplying
the demands of tbe consumers of the
And while the visitors are enjoying
this view and prospect of modern
business aid community thrift, thsy
will be given aa opportunity to look
down the past three hundred and fifty
years. All of this territory was U dis
pute-three and a half centuries ago
between, ths Frenok and Spanish, with"
the Wild Indian holding the balaaca ol
powerJsetweoa?(i4> ?<uaha*ante.^ The
well authenticated that tie first white
men to set foot upon the soil now cor
sred by Jacksonville were frenchmen
under Rene Laudonnere.
The first white man to enter th?
moutb of the St. Johns river wai
Jean Rlbault, in command of a com
yany of Huguenots, who had left
France because of religious persecu
tions. He made his landing on May
1, 1562, fifty yoars after the landing
of ponce de Leon at a point to the
south of Jacksonville. Some histori
ans ere of the opinion that Ponce de
Loon sailed as far north as the mouth
of the St. Johns, but tho weight of
ovldence Is against this opinion.- If
he were here be left no trace. The
evidence is that he did not travel la
a direction from his original landing
that would have brought him to ths
vicinity of Jacksonville. It la thor
oughly established that Rlbault en
tered the mouth of the St. Johns river
May 1, lSIl, and a ailed up the river
some miles to a bluff, where he erect
ed a stone column on which Was in
scribed ths arms ot France. But Rl
bault did not ascend the river as high
as Jacksonville. He went from the
mouth of the river to Port Royal, S. f>.
In 1664, one year after the depar
ture of Rlbault, Rene Laudoonere,
who had boon with Rlbault on tbe
flret expedition, came to the mouth ot
the St. Johns with another oolony of
Huguenots, and ascended the river as
far as the present site ot Jacksonville,
camping probably on the south side of
the river on territory now oovered
by South Jacksonville. These Were
tho first white men to ponetrate the
country above the raouth of the river.
In honor of the day ot dlacovery. May
1, Rlbault gave the river the aims of
May, and this stood until the Span
lards irhlpped out the French, soma
years later. Tho Spaniards called it
the River San Mateo at first, but latei
changed Its name to San Juan. From
this It Anally became the St. Johns.
Old Fort Caroline was situated at St
J&hn's bluff aome miles below ths
city of Jackaonvllle. No sign ot this
historic fort remains, not even a slab
to commemorate its mournful story.
During the reunion, steamboat ex
cursions. w|U be run to stil these points
of hUteiic Interest on the' St. Johns
river. It la but tvnsnty-seven miles
from Jacksonville to ths mouth of ths
St. Jehus, the government has
constructed, with the., aid of Jackson
ville, and the State ot Florida, a sys
torn of jetties, deepened the water oi
the bar and otherwise protected navt
cation. In paaalng between Jackson
.vllle and the jetties, the visitor wll
have no trouble locating the sl(ei ol
I old forts that were erected nearly foui
hundred rear* ago by the French and
' Spanish. The trip is one of the BOM
delightful In lb* Southern States.
