Speaker: Dr. David Head – Saturday, March 18, 2023 – Pirates, Privateers, and the fall of the Spanish Empire
Topic: Over two hundred years ago, in the summer of 1817, a group of pirates and privateers invaded Amelia Island, Florida, a Spanish colony, in hopes of striking a blow for the Spanish American Revolutions. This presentation tells the stories of these revolutionary rogues and their leaders, how they planned to free Florida from Spanish rule, and how the United States intervened to stop them.
