On viewing Pensacola for the first time one is at once impressed with the gradual rise of Palafox Street from the waters of the bay northward to the top of an eminence where tall shaft has been erected in memory of the soldiers of the Confederacy. To the southwest of this monument there are still traces of a fort where grim-visaged war was waged more than a century ago. Flags of three nations have waved from the fortification built on this commanding position, and the results of battles fought here have reached to distant lands and had weight in the councils of kings and diplomats.
