In the fall of 1892 a thirteen-year-old boy requested and received a copy of Campbell’s Historical Sketches of Colonial Florida. Beginning with Panfilo de Narvaez’s discovery of Pensacola Bay, the 284-page book traced the explorations of Hernando de Soto, described the ill-fated attempt of Tristan de Luna to found a colony at Pensacola, and detailed the eventual permanent settlement there. The author emphasized the British Period of Colonial Florida, overweighted the importance of Pensacola, and ended his narrative with the American occupation of the province.
