The Florida House - Patriot Flag: Inns and Intrigue

The tour concludes at the Florida House Inn, where famous Cuban Revolutionary Jose Marti plotted insurrection against the Spanish in his native Cuba. We will discuss filibusters, secret plots, and intrigue. We will discuss the Patriot Rebellion and the short span that the Patriot flag flew over Amelia Island in 1812. This unsupported invasion by U.S. citizens into Spanish Florida began what historian’s refer to as Amelia Island’s “Chaos Period.”
