such manipulation was not possible. Where
available, the originals photocopied for publication
have been digitized and have been added,
separately, to this collection.

Searchable text generated from the digital images,
subsequently, is also poor. The researcher is

PREFATORY
F LORIDA is now in the formative stage. It has begun to realize its potential possibilities.
Aroused from that state of lethargy into which the entire sisterhood of Southern States
was plunged at the close of the Civil War, and aided by capital and a constant stream of
immigration in recognition of its vast and varied resources, the Peninsula State is rapidly
assuming its logical position in. the van of industrial progress. This applies not only to that
long list of progressive enterjpises that constitute the commercial make-up of the State, but
also to such commendable and public-spirited organizations as the National Guard of Florida,
who have been and are always ready to do their utmost to aid the civil authorities to maintain
peace and order for the benefit of the law-abiding.
The work of the National Guard of Florida is largely a labor of love. The bcdy of men com-
prising this organization are earnestly and unselfishly putting forth untiring efforts for the
benefit of the entire public.
This being the first effort of its kind ever undertaken by the National Guard of Florida, we
trust that it will accomplish much to bring about a better understanding between the citizens and
the citizen soldiery.
Thanking all for their hearty co-operation and good moral support.
Respectfully,
NATIONAL GUARD OF FLORIDA.

This compilation of the record only comes down to December 31, 1910, -.
about twenty-three years, and yet the troops have been out or under arms thirty-
four times, an average of over once a year since the formation thereof. -
This sketch could be lengthened by going into many matters of interest '
affecting the troops, such as encampments, maneuvers, etc., but it is thought best .
to keep to the original purpose-that is, a history of the formation of the guard as '
an enlisted body and the changes from time to time in its organization, together
with a resume of its service to the State. The names of many prominent citizens
are connected with the Guard, and to refer to these citizens and their connection r '
with the troops would give pleasure to the writer and be productive personally of '
many happy recollections of twenty years of service. Time and space will not
permit, however; so all personal mention has been confined to commanding
officers of companies when mustered into service or when decided re-organiza-,
tions have taken place, and the general officers and field officers of the troops.
The. writer trusts this hastily written and imperfect sketch may prove inter- t. i;.
testing to the military readers and, in a certain sense, instructive to all who may I
have the persistency to read to the end. The endeavor has been to be accurate
as far as the information contained herein goes, and the official reports have been '
consulted for data. Few persons know the official designations of the various
organizations; hence, what may be termed the civil, as distinct from the military. CAPTAIN J. P. COOMBS
designation has been given to each company wherever possible. In recent years, company L, First Infantry.
the companies are referred to in official report wholly by official designations,
possibly because the civil designations have not been known; hence, in some
instances, especially with regard to new organizations, any civil designation the
company may have or may have had has been unknown to the writer except
where he has come into personal contact with the organization at itshome station. Captain James Percy Coombs was born August 28, 1889, at Portland, Maine.
It would lengthen reports but little to add in brackets the civil designations of Enlisted as private in the National Guard of Florida October 18, 1910; now coin-
companies where such are used, the names they are known by the people and manding Company L, First Regiment.

PLAINNESS, LIBERALITY, LOW COST, STRENGTH


OUR CLAIM TO PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IS BASED UPON THE PLAIN-
NESS AND LIBERALITY OF OUR POLICIES, THE PRICES AT
WHICH WE SELL THEM, AND, MORE IMPORTANT
STILL, THE MONEY WE PLACE BEHIND THEM


THE HIGHEST RESERVE STANDARD
The "Reserve" is such a part of a company's income as is PLACED TO THE CREDIT OF THE POLICY-
HOLDERS.
It is carried as a Liability, and must remain intact. MONEY ONCE SET ASIDE IN RESERVE CANNOT BE
USED FOR EXPENSE PURPOSES, but must, unless the policy to which it belongs is surrendered, be used ONLY
IN THE PAYMENT OF DEATH CLAIMS.
THE ONLY SOUTHERN COMPANY that is putting up the full level premium Reserve, and thereby guaran-
teeing more economical management and greater security than can be obtained by other methods is located right here in
your home State.
