In Celebration of The Fourth of July 2004


Fort Gadsden Historic

Area-A Great Part Of

U.S. Heritage

First of a series of historic articles based upon the
work of historian Wayne Childers and others.
Publisher's Note: John G. Hentz, Panama City resident, wrote in
2001 that Fort Gadsden is a great part of Florida's heritage. He
said, "It is the most famous spot of ground in Florida." The
Chronicle is compelled to point out that the remains of Fort
Gadsden are still reposing in the "backyard of Franklin County,"
up Highway 65, with a short drive "'on graveled Eddie Nesmith
road to the Fort and the interpretation center. This makes a very
picturesque day trip for our county visitors, and a historical re-
freshment for local residents who sometimes overlook the vast
significance of important sites nearby. The enclosed map may be
helpful in locating this site, now under the management of the
U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture.


Historical Significance of Fort Gadsden
As described by John G. Hentz, Panama City resident, Fort Gad
ranks high as an historic site in the evolution of the United Stat
America. His thumbnail sketch is as follows:
... (Fort Gadsden) was Gen. Andrew Jackson's headquarters w
he took Florida from Spain for the United States in the spring
1818. Prior to that time, the southeastern boundary of the Ui
States was about where the Florida-Alabama and the Florida-Ge(
line is today.
In those days, Spain owned Florida. The Indians in North and
Florida could go across the line and kill our frontiersmen and do
back across the line into Florida and nothing was done about it.
two southeastern-most forts, Fort Scott and Fort Mitchell up ir
edge of Georgia, depended on supplies being brought from su
ships on the coast up the Apalachicola River on boats pulled by
by U.S. soldiers.
Fort Scott was up on the Flint River, 10.4 miles above the of the
by the British. The British Fort was a constant peril to the Ur
States. In 1816, it was ordered destroyed by Gen. Jackson, reg
less of who owned it or whose soil it was on. That was done on
morning of July 27, 1916. The fort remained empty for two y
until it was rebuilt and used as a headquarters by Gen. Jackso
the early spring of 1818 when he took Florida for the United State
took the two countries until 1821 to get the transition made.
"In those days, all of the Apalachicola River below the junction at
Flint and the Chattahoochee Rivers was in Spanish territory.
Army sunDlv boats had to come through Spanish territory all the
up the Apalachicola River. British Fort-which today is Fort Gadsde
was built and owned by the British, but it was on Spanish territ
"The British Fort was built at Prospect Bluff, 18 miles north
Apalachicola in 1814 by the British, without permission from Sp
to harbor hostile Indians, runaway slaves or anything that was h
tile to the United States. It was a strategic location that could b
traffic on the river. It had a big storage of munitions and cann
with several thousand yards' range and was under the command
Garcon, who was very hostile to the United States."
The Fort in History
A century and a half of time has softened the evidence of violence
horror that once enveloped Prospect Bluff. The leaves of many si
mers have settled on remains of earthworks were once part of a
overlooking the Apalachicola River.

!s. It Motion To Reopen Ronald Crum

the litigation Against The Executive Director
The
way Of The Florida Fish And Wildlife
ory. Conservation Commission Still Pending
h of The U.S. District Court, on June 22nd, granted summary judgment
hos against plaintiff Ronald Crum in the litigation involving the Executive
lock Director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
lons Ken Haddad. Ronald Crum had filed a lawsuit against the State of
d of Florida, the FFWCC and the Governor seeking an injunction and ap-
proval of a viable rectangular net for the harvest of mullet.
A motion for summary judgment, pending among the legal memo-
randa, was granted on June 22, 2004 by the U. S. District Court
judge Stephen P. Mickle. The opinion stated, in part, "...Summary
and judgment is appropriate where the pleadings, dispositions, answers
um- to interrogatories and admissions on file, together with the affidavits
fort if any, show that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and
that the moving party is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law..."
The State of Florida argued that Mr. Crum failed to sustain a genuine
issue as to whether he is disabled under the American Disability Act,
and that the defendant (Ken Haddard) is entitled to summary judg-
ment on this ground.
The state argued additionally that Mr. Crum had the burden of prov-
ing that because of his disability, he was either excluded from par-
ticipation in or denied the benefits of some public entity's services,
programs or activities, or subjected to discrimination by the entity.
The State of Florida argued, that Mr. Crum had not been excluded
from participation or denied benefits. He has not been prohibited"
from fishing in the same manner as anyone else. Although he may
not be able to catch as many fish due to his physical impairments,
the restrictions on allowable nets are. neutral or their face and there
is no credible evidence to show that they rest on a discriminatory
motive.
The district judge summary judgment opinion continued, "Given these
circumstances, nothing in the ADA requires the State to make an
exception for Plaintiff (Crum) to allow him to catch as many fish as
someone with no impairment, or enough fish to maintain his liveli-
hood as a commercial fisherman."
In his motion to reopen the case, Plaintiff Crum, through his attorney
Charles McClure, reminded the District Court that an order for Trial
and Pre-Trial had been established in late May, setting a pre-trial
conference on June 28th, "at which time the order specified that the
Court will ordinarily dispose of all motions and other matters at issue
including the prospect of settlement by the parties. Under Federal
Court rules, the plaintiff was also planning to file an affidavit in op-
position to the pending motion for Summary Judgment, "which mo-
tion could be filed up to the day before the hearing." Thus, they ar-
gued, the plaintiff Crum petitions the Court to reopen the cause and
continue with the pre-trial conference to consider additional evidence
and hear argument of counsel.

EDITORIAL & COMMENTARY

Commercial Harvest Of Gulf

Grouper To Be Prohibited
The National Marine Fisheries Service has issued final regulations of
the Secretary of Commerce's Amendment to the Gulf of Mexico Reef
Fish Management Plan. The Plan will take effect July 15, at which
time the deepwater grouper fishery will be closed because the 1.02
million-pound annual quota will have been reached.
The shallow water grouper (gag & red primarily) has a quota of 8.80
million pounds. Of this total the red grouper quota is 5.31 million
pounds and at the present rate of harvest, the entire grouper fishery
will likely be closed in October. At that time no grouper may be har-
vested or sold from the Gulf of Mexico. Recreational fishermen will
still be allowed to catch 5 grouper, only 2 of which can be a red grou-
per.
The deepwater closure is the most onerous as there is no scientific
data to backup the arbitrary and capricious setting of 1.02 million
pounds of deepwater grouper, composed primarily of yellow edge grou-
per. Most of the yellow edge grouper is being harvested in Texas. No
modeling was done on this fishery so the US Secretary of Commerce
used the past 3 years to determine the annual catch and set that
figure as the quota.
Hundreds of Florida businesses will be adversely impacted by this
new regulation. If the grouper fishery is closed for three or four months,
fish houses will lose their market share because their customers will
replace grouper with some other fish item.
Steve Rash, owner of Water Street Seafood in Apalachicola said, "How
can our government close down a fishery they don't know anything
about? Why doesn't the Secretary of Commerce abide his own regula-
tions that call for scientific data and economic impacts to be.consid-
ered before a regulation that closes down my business is put into
effect?"
Bob Jones, executive director of the Southeastern Fisheries Associa-
tion and Bob Spaeth, director of the Southern Offshore Fishing Asso-
ciation have been trying to get the National Marine Fisheries Service
and the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management's Council to address the
latent fishing effort for over four years and the Council just turns a
blind eye to these suggestions. The fishing industry has tried to get a
moratorium on new entrants into the fishery and has tried to reduce
the number of permits being held by doctors, lawyers and all kinds of
other people who one day might want to get into the commercial grou-
per fishing business.
The result of this arbitrary grouper regulation will cost Florida mil-
lions of dollars and will result in restaurants substituting other fish
for grouper when the season is closed or taking grouper off the menu.
All of this hardship could have been avoided if the government and
Council had listened to the connmeicial grouper fishing industry and
reduced effort during the past four years.

Carrabelle City Council Meeting
July 1, 2004

Our Famous Police Station Moves

Police cruiser won't make the trip, heads for the


scrapyard
Late in Thursday night's meeting,
where the pace of business accel-
erates toward the finish line, a
small line item stopped everyone
in their tracks. On the topic of
sign maintenance under vote was
the World's Smallest Police Sta-
tion. The question, "Wasn't that
lettering just painted?" from the
audience started it.
SThe amount of $450 had been al-
located to repaint the local monu-
ment. Skip Frink, president of the
Carrabelle Area Chamber of Com-
merce, volunteered the chamber's
services to supervise the design
and the work, and commission-
ers agreed. The original station,
developed by Curley Messer and
others decades ago, is in the
chamber office downtown, and
the "working tourist model" is a
more modern and weatherproof
booth.
Next came arguments about the
police car. Doc Saunders told of
constant vandalism to the car,
and suggested that the current
surplus car not be put back. The
discussion developed to the point
of someone's question: "Why not
put it in a better place anyway?
... tourists risk their lives every
day by standing in the middle of
98 taking pictures". Many com-
ments led to a consensus and
vote: the Police Station will move
to the "triangle", the eastern ap-
proach to downtown which cur-
rently has a miniature lighthouse,
lawn, sidewalk and a bench. The
lighthouse will be moved, a con-
crete slab poured for the monu-
ment and we'll have no more flat-
tened tourists.
Approval of Bills
All OK'd, with one partial-pay for
Royal American's water/sewer
work.
Commissioner Reports
Mayor Brown first stood up to his
full 6-foot-plus height, which put
him effectively out of the range of
the new microphone at his seat.
After coaxing from spectators, he
lifted the mike out of its holder,


and proceeded (with crystal-clear
results) to thank Freda White on
behalf of the city for her contri-
bution of the much-needed pub-
lic address system.
The mayor appointed Mike
Horvath, of the Fire Department,
to place the order for the new lad-
der truck before July 15 to save
the city 2%, several thousand dol-
lars.
He announced that on July 26,
county commission candidates
would appear at the Senior Cen-
ter in Carrabelle to answer ques-
tions from citizens.
Board of Adjustment
Jim Waddell, for Pirates Cove
Landing, requested the same
10-foot to 5-foot setback that nu-
merous other developments have
gotten. Also noted that the project
would adhere to the 20-foot criti-
cal habitat setback, not the
50-foot county mark as before
annexation.
Mariners landing requested a
variance in elevation for public
restrooms to ground level, an 11
-foot lowering. This would serve
handicapped access.
Public Hearing
Freda White's subject was the
land use change and rezoning of
the "Julia Mae's and Docko-
minium" property from county
C-4 to city C- 1. Commissioners
were positive, with presentation
of proof that the move had been
published locally.
Unfinished Business
Made one police officer hire.
Approved both Board of Adjust-
ment items above.
Donald Wood got his approval for
the city to abandon a useless
small piece of land that had been

of materials.
On July 1st, the County officially
took over the operation and man-
agement of the Fort Coombs Ar-
mory. Mr. Van Johnson has ap-
plied for and received coverage for
a Special Event Commercial Li-
ability Policy for rentals unable to

Public Access Pier
Ryan Dwyer appeared before the
Board representing Land of the
Bluff subdivision to request per-
mission to install a pier for pub-
lic access, and the use of those
living in the new subdivision. The
Board appeared favorably dis-
posed to the idea, but asked the
County Attorney to review main-
tenance and liability matters and
report back to them at the next
meeting.

Airport
The Board accepted three bids for
restripping and signage at the
Apalachicola Airport, selecting the
lowest bidder, TCA Electric,

vider.
Moesteller said, "It appears that
there are no other providers for
the digital GCO at this time, there-
fore with your declaration declar-
ing Avtech Marketing as Sole Pro-
vider we can dispense with adver-
tising and negotiate installation
immediately."
The Board approved the submis-
sion of new requests for the fiscal
year 2005, including the follow-
ing;


"As you may remember, we com-
pleted the SPCC (Spill Prevention,
Control and Countermeasure)
plan in January 2004 as required
by the Federal EPA (United States
Environmental Protection
Agency). We are now under Fed-
eral mandate (violation) to relo-
cate and update the fuel farm
before the end of 2004, so this is
our first priority for pro ect year
2005. This project is in the JACIP
(Joint Automated Capital Im-
provement Process) program with
funds encumbered and we would
like to request a 100% (matching
wavered) JPA (Joint Participation
Agreement), estimated at
$100,000.,"
The Board also approved the ad-
ditional requests for projects at
the airport.

hangar ($200,000), We have les-
sees requests for these three han-
gars.
acquire land for R/W 31/13 ex-
tension($550,000 plus).

County Planner
Mark Curenton informed the
Commissioners: 'There are three
seats on the Board of Adjustment
that are currently vacant. Also the
Board of Adjustment is still with-
out an attorney. There is a meet-
ing scheduled tomorrow morning
with 15 items on the agenda, but
one of the members has ,notified
the planning office that he will not
be able to be at the meeting. He
has to take his wife to the doctor.
There will not be a quorum with-
out him.
The Board appointed Eastpoint
resident Bonnie Segree to the
Board and asked the County At-
torney to attend the meeting.
Mr. Curenton also said, "I have an
update on the St. George Island
FCT grant for a boat ramp. The
owners have turned down the
state's offer for the entire site, but
the state is still negotiating with
the owners, trying to purchase
some property for a boat ramp. I
will keep the Board informed."
"DCA has notified Franklin
County that the comprehensive
plan we transmitted was not com-
plete. We need to include data and
analysis on each of the proposed
land use changes we submitted
with the comprehensive plan. I am
assembling the required informa-
tion and hope to have it up to DCA
this week."


Franklin County has received an
invoice from FSU for retainage for
writing Comprehensive Plan. Our
contract with FSU calls for the
County to retain 10%, which
comes to $10,000, of the contract
until the comprehensive plan is
approved by DCA. Basically FSU
does not want to wait until the
political fight over the comprehen-
sive plan is settled before they get
their final payment.
St. George Island Bridge fishing
piers. The contractors are nearly
finished with the St. George Island
bridge project and the state is
about ready to turn the remains
of the old bridge over to Franklin
County for use as fishing piers.
The Board needs to decide who
in the county government is re-
sponsible for overseeing the fish-
ing piers and what the county is
going to do with them.
The Board scheduled a public
hearing to consider the proposed
notice of proposed change to the
St. George's Plantation Develop-
ment of Regional Impact. "I have
received comments from the re-.
gional planning council on this
notice. I have a copy for the
Board's file. The U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service has concerns
about endangered species and
DEP has concerns about the
houses being on individual aero-
bic systems. The ARPC is trying
to set up a meeting on the site to
discuss these concerns, but the
Board needs to go ahead and
schedule a public hearing. After
talking with the ARPC and the
applicant I suggest setting the
public hearing at the second
meeting in August, August 17.
The Board approved.

The Boyd Report

The Defense Appropriations

Bill: Providing Our Military With

The Tools They Need

By Congressman Allen Boyd
"This week, the U.S House of Representatives passed the Defense
Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2005. Now, more than ever, we
must ensure that our military has the tools necessary to continue
their mission and guarantee our troops are secure. Congress added
$25 billion to the Defense Appropriations bill to meet our military
needs and guarantee our men and women in uniform have the equip-
ment they need to safely continue the efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I have the opportu-
nity to secure funding for projects and programs throughout the 2 d
Congressional District that fortify our nation's military. I am proud of
our communities in North Florida and the role they play in national
security, and I am proud that through our collective efforts, they re-
ceive their fair share of funding opportunities.
I was able to secure $1 million for the Future Affordable Multi Utility
Materials Program, which will be carried out by Florida Agricultural
and Mechanical University (FAMU). This program seeks to develop
advanced process sensors at a low cost for the Army so unmanned
vehicles can play a more significant role in the Future Combat Sys-
tems fleet. These unmanned vehicles will autonomously gather intel-
ligence and carry out tactical missions on land and in the air.
"Secondly, I was able to secure $1 million for the science and engi-
neering departments at Florida State University (FSU) to research
nanotubes. FSU has been working with the Army to develop materi-
als for a fleet of lightweight fighting vehicles that will have the same
firepower and survivability as the current Army battle tank. The most
promising approach is to use very strong and lightweight nanotubes,'
which are several times stronger than steel and weigh significantly
less. Tanks that have usually weighed over 120,000 pounds will he
'replaced with vehicles that weigh 1/3 less, but are as durable and,
easier to transport.
"Additionally, I was able to secure $1 million for FSU to develop new,
.distance learning tools for the navy, which will allow officers and
enlisted personnel to maintain or acquire skill sets at closer locations
instead of being detached from their unit to attend a traditional school.
This approach not only saves the Navy money by reducing travel costs,
but also allows the trainee to remain on base with their family in-
stead of being sent on temporary duty to receive the new skill set.
"Next, the St. Marks Powder facility in Wakulla County, a subsidiary
of General Dynamics, received $4.5 million to develop a hybrid ball
propellant for use in small, medium, and large caliber munitions".
Although ball powder is generally not suited for medium and large
'caliber munitions, St. Marks has developed a hybrid ball powder pro-
pellant which has more even burn characteristics and greater force.
General Dynamics believes will make it an ideal propellant for me-
dium and large caliber ammunition. This funding will allow the Army
to test the propellant in large and medium caliber guns.
"Finally, Coastal Systems Station (CSS) in Panama City is currently
working on the development of the Deployable Joint Command and
. ControfSystem (DJC2). This program seeks to tie in all of the military
service's command and control systems into one common infrastruc-
ture to improve the flow of information to the command center. In the
process of doing this work, it became apparent that the internet could
play an important part in the development of this system. However,
the current fourth generation Internet will not be sufficiently secure
and will soon face space limitations. I was able to secure $1 million
for the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6). This funding will allow CSS
to begin research on how to implement IPv6 protocol into the system
and how it will impact other military web sites.
"This bill, and the projects it funds, is crucial in ensuring our nation
has the resources to win the war on terrorism and continue the de-
velopment of the next generation of weapons systems, and in turn
will ensure we preserve the worlds strongest military."


Inappiopriately Titled "Mullet

Madness" Runs On The Sunshine

Network

TV Program Explains the Impact of the So-called
"Net Limitation" Amendment to the Florida
Constitution on Florida's Fishing Industry
A TV program on mullet fishing by local videographer Robert Seidler
inappropriately titled "Mullet Madness-Traditional Florida Fishing
Families in Peril" was shown regionally for the first time on the Sun-
shine Cable TV network on Tuesday, July 6th and Friday July 9th at
8 a.m. Unfortunately, the political audience that needed to see this
project are in very low numbers in those time periods.
Mr. Seidler and his scriptwriter, Lee Berger, had a good organization
to their project. Four fishing families are briefly described, and,a day's

fishing work is depicted, each in very stark terms clearly showing me
impact of the two-inch stretch mesh requirement on the catch of the
day.
In each instance, the byproduct and juvenile fish are an overwhelm-
ing part of the daily catch, with very little left over for the market. The
implication is so clear, one would have to be asleep during the pro-
gram. The implication is that the State of Florida is systematically
destroying the Florida fishing industry with the two-inch stretch mesh
requirement, that allows the juvenile fish to be caught and later dis-
carded.
This finding is so clear in the Seidler project as to be unmistakable.
The real culprits in this scenario are those who sit on the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) who are making in-
credibly stupid rules that are actually destroying the resource they
seek to protect. If the mesh were larger, as in the Pringle-Crum net
(up to 3 inches), the productivity for the State's resource and the
fishing community would be increased substantially. This was clearly
demonstrated in the Seidler project. But, the overall tone was so sub-
dued, complimented with a feminine narrator voice, as to lose its
impact.
Moreover, the project did not even mention the FFWCC, nor the Gov-
ernor, who shares some responsibility for this "madness" if that is an
appropriate word. I don't think that it is. Why? Because the mesh
size decision is not based on biology but politics. This is an inten-
tional and systematic method of destroying the Florida fishing indus-
try. The armchair regulators need to get out of their cushy and
well-traveled environment and get to talk with the fishing community
to learn more about the problems. One is tempted to add, they ought
to stop listening to the lawyers in the Attorney General's office as
well. In that sense, the TV project was well worth the investment, but
the sponsors may have to consider buying time to get it before a mass
audience.
The 27-minute program, reviews the history of mullet fishing in Florida
and reveals the struggles of four fishing families from around the
state following the 1994 constitutional net-limitation amendment.
One of the commercial fishermen featured in the film Is Mr. Keith
Ward of St. Marks and his partner Daniel Weston. The two provide an
account of the hardships and hard feelings of mullet fishermen try-
ing to make a living with the smaller nets in area waters. Mullet fish-
.ermen from Cortez, Pine Island, and Stuart Florida are also inter-
viewed. The film shows the drastic difference, reasons and conse-
quences of net fishing, both before and after the net limitation, and
how fishermen would like to carry on their traditional fishing prac-
tices in a more sustainable and productive way.
Also assisting in the film project was local marine biologist Mr. Paul
Johnson, who collected fisheries data and information on the nets
and their' catch and Mr. Ray.Pringle, a fifth-generation commercial
fishermen and director of the Florida Fishermen's Federation, a state-
wide commercial fishing organization. Mr. Pringle was based in Pana-
cea, before moving his fishing organization to Jacksonville following
his father's death Writer and editor Mr. Lee Berger with Seidler Pro-
ductions, also worked extensively on the project.
Since the net limitation requirements have been in place, mullet popu-
lations have rebounded to biologically sustainable levels. Traditional
mullet fishermen, however, continue to struggle with the smaller
"mesh-size" or openings in the net (<2.0 inches), which unintention-
ally captures smaller size fish that are not marketable or desirable to
catch. This makes commercially viable and biologically acceptable
fishing difficult.
"One of the interesting things about making documentaries, said film-
maker Robert Seidler, "is you get to see and really understand what's
going on". "This documentary has allowed me to see both sides of the
argument and how powerful public impressions are in making public
policy". "It is important that the public understand what the unin-
tended consequences of their actions are going to be at the voting
booth", said Seidler. In this case, its not just for the fish, but the
fishermen and a way-of-life for many old time Floridians as well".

An artist's depiction of the Fort Gadsden explosion, July 27, 1816.


In 1814, a fort called the British Post was built on this site with the
permission of Spanish authorities. The fort served as a base for the
British recruitment of Indians and blacks during their War of 1812
against the U.S. After the war, the British commander, Col. Nicholls
left the post to the assemblage of free blacks from Pensacola, escaped
slaves and Indians. Under an agreement that the group would not
raid U.S. territory 50 miles to the north, Nicholls left them with sub-
stantial artillery and munitions including 700 kegs of gunpowder.
"The post became known as the Negro Fort and quickly attracted
more settlers who farmed and traded along the river. U.S. Gen. An-
drew Jackson viewed the fort with alarm. He claimed that its 44 "ren-
egades" were responsible for raids into Georgia and that it attracted
runaway American slaves. He ordered Fort Scott to be built near
present-day Chattahoochee, apparently knowing that a supply route
up the Apalachicola River and past the fort would bring matters to a
head.
In early July 1816, a supply convoy entered Apalachicola Bay. Four
sailors who went ashore for fresh water, were killed by a group of
blacks and Indians. News of the killings reached Col. Clinch in Fort
Scott and he took two companies of soldiers south on the river to
rendezvous with two gunboats sailing north from the bay. The boats,
troops and Indian allies surrounded the Negro Fort on July 27 and
asked for its surrender. The commander of the fort, which was now
filled with people from the countryside refused the request and an
artillery exchange began.
The fateful fifth shot from one of the gunboats was a "hot shot"-a
red-hot cannonball. It found its way through the door of the powder
magazine and the fort instantly disappeared in a massive explosion
that reportedly was heard as far away as Pensacola!
"The explosion was awful and the scene horrible beyond description,"
wrote Col. Clinch in his report. Of the 300 people in the fort at the
time of the attack, only 30 survived the blast. The Americans quickly
sentenced the Indian chief and Negro commandant to death for the
murder of the four sailors, aajd,sentence,was promptly, carried out.
In 1818, Andrew Jackson led a land force down the Apalachicola to
destroy Seminole villages. Impressed by the strategic location of the
old fort, he directed Lt. James Gadsden of the Engineer Corps. who
later made the famed Gadsden Purchase, to build a fortification there
as a supply base. Pleased with the lieutenant's zeal, Jackson named
it Fort Gadsden. A garrison was maintained at the fort, despite Span-
ish protests, until Florida was ceded to the United States.
History bypassed the old fort until 1862, when the Confederate Army
occupied it to defend the river from federal gunboats. Prior to Its block-
ade. Apalachicola was a town of approximately 3,000 and the largest
exporting and importing port in Florida. The river and its tributaries
led to plantations in Florida. Georgia and Alabama, breadbasket of
the South.
On May 25,1863, a federal gunboat did slip past the fort and the
obstructions in the river and captured a small boat loaded with 50
bales of cotton four miles above the fort.
The Confederate troops occupied the fort until July 1863, when ma-
laria drove them out of the lowlands along the river. Four field pieces
and a detachment of infantry and cavalry were moved to a healthier
position. With the war's end, Fort Gadsden receded into oblivion.
In 1961 the Florida Board of Parks obtained jurisdiction over these

Early History 1804-1812
On May 25th, 1804, the Creek Indians ceded certain lands on the
Apalachicola River to Panton, Leslie and Company. These later were
incorporated into what we now know as the Forbes' Grant given the
same company by the King of Spain. A short while later that year, the
Company set up a store on the river near Achackweithele, which was
later known as Buena Vista by the Spaniards, Prospect Bluff by the
English and today as Fort Gadsden.
By 1808, the Company had set up a storehouse near there along with
slave cabins, a granary, a skin warehouse, a dwelling house for the
trader and thirty acres of cleared land. In another place it also had
fields, a cowpen and 1200 head of cattle,.
The Indians continued to pile up bad debts, primarily because of the
way trade was done and in 1811, had to give up even more land to the
company for their debts. However, things remained fairly peaceful
between the Company and the Indians and trade continued until the
war of 1812, when the locals began-killing its cows and the Company
had to hire rangers to protect them.
There were however, rumblings on the horizon that would eventually
lead to war. The Americans were encroaching on the lands of the
Upper Creeks in Georgia. Tecumseh, the great Shawnee warchief,
visited them and found them receptive to his message to expel the
Americans from Indian lands.

A model of the Fort created by Eastpoint resident Bill Greer
can be viewed in the intrepretation center at the site.
War of 1812
When the War of 1812 broke out, things became worse. The Creeks
split into two factions, the Red Sticks or traditionalists who wished to
retain all their Indian ways and customs and the liberals, who were
mostly halfbreeds and their white relatives. The former still lived in
traditional villages while the latter had moved out and away from the
villages and were mainly small farmers and were for assimilation into
American society.
The Governor of Pensacola was alarmed at American incursions into
West Florida, their seizure of the outpost of Walnut Hills (Memphis,
Tennessee), the Florida Parishes in Louisiana, coastal Mississippi and
on April 15, 1813, Mobile, Alabama and their continuous incursions
into the rest of West Florida. He invited the chiefs, Peter McQueen
and Thomas Perryman to Pensacola. After a long argument, he gave
them guns and ammunition to defend themselves from the Ameri-
cans. On their way home, they were ambushed on July 27, 1813 by a
small force of Mississippi militia under a Colonel Coller at Burnt Corn
Creek. The Indians won.
The Liberals became aware of this Red Stick victory and about 500 of
them forted up in a blockhouse known as Fort Mims. On August,
30th, they were surprised and most of those who were there, were
killed.
The United States entered this Creek civil war on the side of the Lib-
erals and at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, the Red Sticks under the
leadership of William Weatherford, a Creek of one-eighth Indian Blood,
were defeated. Weatherford it is said, jumped his white horse off the
bluff into the river rather than be taken. Mrs. James Lamar Faison,
his great-great-granddaughter now lives in Port St. Joe.
After the battle, the Liberals signed the Treaty of Fort Jackson with
the Americans in which certain of the halfbreeds received large grants
of land in return for giving away-the Red Sticks' lands in Georgia.
Some of their descendants may also be found living in the
Franklin-Gulf County area.
The Red Sticks were justifiably angry at this treaty giving away their
lands by a treaty from which they had been excluded from taking
part. They apparently wrote the King of England asking for aid and
told Benjamin Hawkins, the American Indian agent that since they
had been driven from their homes and with their backs now to the
sea, they would fight until the King of England .told them to make
peace. They had by this time apparently gathered around the
Company's store and at the villages on the Apalachicola and along

The tranquil river front at the Fort Gadsden site.
the Escambia River which were all in Spanish territory.
British help was not long in arriving. With the war against Napoleon
and the French now won, they had vast military resources at their
command. Admiral John B. Cochrane, commanding the American
station, sent an expeditionary force to help the Red Sticks.
Captain Hugh Pigot, commanding the frigate Orpheus arrived at
.. Apalachicola Bay on May 11, 1814, bringing blankets, presents and
2,000 muskets and ammunition. His job was to feel out the Indians
and see what kind of stomach they had for continuing the war.
Brevet Captain George Woodbine, Royal Marines, was sent to contact
the Indians and act as the southern British Indian agent. On May
20th, a number of the chiefs came on board and negotiations were
begun. The next day, two marines, Sergeant Samuel Smith and Cor-
poral James Denny were set ashore to begin drilling the Indians in
the use of firearms and the construction of a blockhouse was begun
and quickly finished on St. Vincent's Island. The stores were landed
There and some were distributed to the Indians.
On May 28th, Captain Woodbine rowed upriver to Achackweithele,
which he called Prospect Bluff, and established a commissary about
," a half a mile to a mile south from where Edmund Doyle was running
\ the Panton, Leslie Store. The only incident he suffered, was a light-'
- ning storm the next night which blew up one of the largest powder
casks and apparently propelled one of the Indians into the river since
he was only severely scorched.
He then assembled the Indians and began to conclude the negotia-
tions with them. There were three main groups. The Seminoles under
Thomas Perryman, the Miccasukis under Cappachamico and the Black
Seminoles under Garzon, who was probably secondary to Perryman
who was apparently chief of all the Seminoles at this time. The Black
Seminoles at that time, had apparently been settling in villages along
7. the river since 1750 and were keenly aware of their fate should the
Americans defeat the Indians.
Some Choctaws showed up and said that if the British would aid
them, they too, would join up. This was a surprise since they had
earlier refused Tecumseh's offer of an alliance against the Ameri-
cans.
On May 28th, at the end of the negotiations, Woodbine made the
following speech to the Indians:
"Your Father, King George, sends meamong you to bring
arms and ammunition to defend yourselves, though, Your
Father got only one letter from you and then gave you
the answer. Hear! Your Father told me to tell you that he
had never forgotten his good Children, the Creeks but
that many enemies had tried for some years to destroy
Your-Father but the Great Spirit had stood him friend,
and had made him so strong that he had beat them all. .
Your Father told me to tell you that he was sorry to hear
that those evil ones, then the Americans come robbing
his children, the Creeks of their lands and are driving
them, their women and children into the woods like Ti-
gers. Your Father wishes you to talk the straight talk
with his children about your desirings (sic). Your Father
wishes to know what things you want to make you all
happy. If you tell me, I will write to His great Admiral and
Warrior (Admiral Cochrane) who so will send them. Your
Father told me to tell you that he wants to provide to the
Indians and to make them into one family that they may
unite and drive the Children of the Bad Spirit and Ameri-
cans out of their lands and hunting grounds. Your Fa-
ther told me that he wants some Americans alive, women
and children and if you will take them all prisoner in-
stead of killing them, he would send you good firearms
every year and plenty of powder and ball to hunt with.
You must bring them all to me, his Captain and ..illeg-
ible.. so the Admiral and great Warrior who will then write
the King, Your Father, all positive talk about you..."
At the end of this speech, the Indians agreed to his demands and
signed the most amazing document:
"In the name of all the chiefs of the Creek Nations now
assembled against the Americans, we promise to save
the lives of all prisoners taken, be them man, woman or
child and to give them all to Captain Woodbine of the
Royal Marines who here informed us they would be a
grateful present to Our Father, King George.
For all the chiefs, we sign by their desire.
Thomas [T P (his mark)] Perryman, King of the Seminoles
Cappachamico [(appears to be two letters in the Chero-
kee alphabet) his mark], King of the Mukusukis (sic)

Steel Frame Duplex Project Moves Into Interior Work At Chronicle Compound

inspections must be per-
formed when those installa-
tions are completed and be-
fore insulation and sheet-
rock are installed. Rodney
Roofing (Port St. Joe) will
install a sheet metal roof on
'the structure as materials
arrivee this week.
This wide view of the duplex
is at the rear of the build-
ing, on the west side, show-
ing the patio area for one
side of the building.
Given this hurricane prone
environment, there are
some limitations on the
range of available siding
materials. The usual choices
range from Hardiboard, vinyl
or stucco design, given a
-limited budget. A more ex-
pensive siding material
,would include brick, also a
medium that is labor inten-
sive. Vinyl may come loose
during severe wind storms
and some forms of vinyl
have actually deteriorated
and blown off during severe
weather. Stucco brings the
risk of cracking if the foun-
dation of the structure is not
,,secure. Hardiboard usually
requires painting for com-
plete exterior protection but
it has a major advantage
lower cost. Complete protec-
tion from the severe weather
is afforded by cypress board
with perhaps a batton at ev-
ery seam but the costs for
this highly resistant wood
are very high along with at-
tendant labor costs for in-
stallation.


The steel frame duplex be-
ing erected at the Chronicle
compound, 33 Begonia
Street, Eastpoint, has been
wrapped in DuPont Tyvek
housewrap while Summer-
hill Electric (Carrabelle) is
installing electrical service,
air-conditioning and heat
pump equipment.

THE FEVER MAN
A Biography of Dr. John Gorrie


Fort Gadsden site


The strange thing about this document, was that the custom of these
Indians from time immemorial was to consider each death as a blood
feud and to take one life from their enemies for each life they lost to
them. Now they were saying that they would no longer do as they had
always done in burning their enemies alive, torturing them to death
or simply killing them to even out the score but would now turn them
over to the British.
Woodbine in a letter to Pigot, stated his opinion that with one regi-
ment of Royal Marines to encourage the Indians, that they 'could
raise a force of 8 to 10 thousand and so divert the Americans. His
opinion was that they were all the finest of fighting men and needed'
only a little discipline to make superb troops.
With this positive response on the part of the Indians, Captain Pigot
left Woodbine with Smith and Denny along with some 40 pistols, some
drums, a launch, barrels of corned gunpowder and other supplies
and gifts for the Indians. The Orpheus sailed off apparently leaving
- the three on St. Vincent's Island to transfer the goods and continue
to establish a commissary upriver at Prospect Bluff as well as to con-
tinue to attract the Indians to the British side and to drill them in the
British way of war.

Political Forums from Page 1

The mission statement of the political education committee contin-
ued, "...we encourage and solicit county wide participation in this
venture in order to provide all areas of the county with the opportu-
nity to promote an informed, responsible electorate. It is our belief,
and it is our representatives and those representatives will better
respond to our common concerns and needs."
In conjunction with the Franklin County Supervisor of Elections Of-
fice, the current objective of the political education committee is to
provide for and manage seven public forums scheduled from July 27,
2004 through August 28, 2004, for the purpose of introducing candi-
dates to, the voting,' public which are running for public office in
Franklin County.
H'Cola is a service organization designed to help facilitate growth,
empowerment and the overall betterment of the community-the

cluding religious, civic, school, etc. H'Cola, in conjunction with the
Franklin County Democratic Women's Club, has invited all candi-
dates to participate in the political forums.

voting population of the hill and to allow our community the opportu-
nity to learn more of your aspirations and intentions for the office

specific. We will not allow questions of a personal nature. We will
stick to the issues. Our format will included moderator to facilitate
audience questions as well as a 6 person panel who will be allowed to

(192) Vivian Sherlock's biography of John Gorrie, The
Fever Man, is available once again after being out-of-print
for more than a decade. This is the story of John Gorrie,
young physician who invented an "ice machine" that many
argue was a forerunner to air conditioning dozens of years
later. His cooling device was developed to provide relief
to his suffering yellow fever patients. A museum in
Apalachicola to this day marks the work of John Gorrie
just across from his last resting place in Gorrie Square,
down from Trinity Church. This book tells what is now
known about Dr. Gorrie, his work and his ice machine.
Paperback, New, 151 pp. Bookshop price = $10.00

(21) Outposts on the Gulf by William Warren Rogers. Uni-
versity of Florida Press, Hardcover, 297 pp. In this book,
Rogers traces and documents the economic, social and
political emergence of the Gulf coast port of Apalachicola
and the pristine barrier island, Saint George. From the
earliest times, both the island and Apalachicola have be-
come intertwined. The account of the machinations of con-
troversial developer William Lee Popham is the first phase
of area development, later leading to the controversial
struggles of the 1970s when environmentalists and sea-
food industries fought to determine the ecological and eco-
nomic fate of the Bay area. The Chronicle has obtained
a fresh supply of newly reprinted volumes at an at-
tractive price. Available elsewhere for $35.95 plus ship-
ping and handling. The Chronicle Bookshop price is much
cheaper at $25.00 per volume.
