SOURCE DOCUMENT ADVISORY

Digital images were created from printed source
documents that, in many cases, were photocopies of
original materials held elsewhere. The quality of
these copies was often poor. Digital images reflect
the poor quality of the source documents.

Where possible images have been manipulated to
make them as readable as possible. In many cases
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
advised not to rely solely upon text-search in this
collection.

DIGITIZATION

Titles from the SPECIAL ARCHIVES PUBLICATION series

efforts to bring the company up to the highest state of efficiency, and to minister
to the needs of his men and in every way better their condition, entitled him to
great praise.
The death of Corporal Wallace T. Leonardy, which occurred suddenly dur-
ing the night of November 14th, in his company quarters, the result of an attack
of spinal meningitis, was a sad blow to all of his comrades. He was an old mem-
ber of the company, one of its best soldiers, and beloved by all. His remains
were shipped to St. Augustine and there interred with military honors.
The deaths of Musician Henry J. Nelligan and Private George W. Beverly
occurred on December 11th, and their remains were shipped to St. Augustine
for interment.
Notwithstanding the frequent visits of the Grim Reaper to our little mili-
tary family, the men found much pleasure in their stay in Alabama. The
people of Huntsville were specially kind to the Florida boys, and their generous
hospitality lent a soft side to the "Alabama campaign," a campaign devoid alike
of victories and defeats, save those of Cupid.
As a welcome Christmas present came the news that the battalion was
ordered to be mustered out, and on the 27th of January the organizations which
had so proudly gone forth (as they thought) to battle were disbanded, and the
men returned to their homes singly and in groups.
During the year succeeding the war very little interest was manifested in
military matters. Many of the old members of the Rifles felt that they had
had enough of soldiering for a time, and their applications for discharge were
granted. Because of the press of business affairs Captain Howatt decided to
withdraw from the company, but accepted an appointment as quartermaster of ..
the First Infantry, the State Troops having been reorganized into two regiments
of infantry and a battalion of artillery. Lieutenant towatt also withdrew from
the company, and in May, 1899, Lieutenant Foster was elected captain, First
Sergeant Snow was elected first lieutenant, and Sergeant J. Gilchrist MacGoni- CAPTAIN FRANK J. HOWATT,

act of the Legislature of 1899, all candidates for commission in the Florida State -

the Governor. Mr. Rahner passed this examination with a high rating and -
was commissioned Captain December 13, 1901. .
In January of 1902, First Lieutenant Henry M. Snow, Jr., for a second
time resigned as a commissioned officer of the Rifles, this being made necessary
by his removal from the city. The vacancy thus created was filled by the pro-
motion of his brother, Second Lieutenant George W. Snow. At an election
recently held, the company nominated Sergeant Roy Canfield for the position -
of Second Lieutenant. His commission has not yet been issued, but Sergeant
Canfield has had long service in the company, and his nomination for promotion A
is a deserved compliment to a worthy soldier..
In April of this year, upon the occasion of the visit to St. Augustine of .. .
the Governor and Commander-in-Chief, his staff and members of the General
Staff, the Rifles had the honor of receiving the party, and, with Company "B,"
First Infantry (of Fernandina), acted as escort.
