Creator: City of Jacksonville
Abstract: The City of Jacksonville celebrated 450 years of French history in early May 2012. One of the many events included the rededication of the Ribault Monument at Ft. Caroline National Memorial. Before the ceremony, Mayor Alvin Brown spoke to those who gathered at the monument, including French descendants of Jean Ribault who traveled to the United States for the ceremony. Fracoise laupretre, descendant of Jean Ribault, said the ceremony solidified the family stories she grew up hearing. The Ribault Monument commemorates the landing of Jean Ribault near the mouth of the St. Johns River in 1562. Ribault erected a stone column bearing the coat of arms of King Charles IX to claim Florida for France.
