Florida is the fortunate possessor of one of this country’s most interesting monuments of the past - the impressive Spanish fort at St. Augustine. The sketch of its history which the docile traveller hears, as he and other amiable sightseers follow the guide like lambs, seems for the most part colorless, sensational and incomplete.
