"It will be seen by the historical facts given in this Story of the Huguenots that they were the first martyrs to civil and religious liberty on the North American Continent; arriving as they did nearly half a century before the landing of the Puritans at Plymouth. Their trials, sufferings, and the tragic deaths of many of them, while not resulting in establishing a permanent settlement, sanctified the land to liberty, although more than two hundred years elapsed before a final victory was achieved for human freedom and the greatest republic on earth was established. Another fact is shown by history: The Huguenots driven to America by intolerable oppression, from first to last, have filed our chronicles with gallant and patriotic deeds and the names of their descendants stand high on our rolls of honor, in every walk of life." In1562, inspired by Cortez, Pizarro, Balboa, De Leon and De Soto, Admiral Coligny of France sent two vessels with colonists, under Jean Ribault and Rene Laudonniere, in search of a refuge for French Huguenots, but a settlement was not established in Florida until 1564. Discussions include La Caroline, interactions with native inhabitants, the struggle for power between France and Spain, slaughters at Matanzas, D'Erlach, Chevalier D'Ottigny, Ostinola and his people, Huguenot explorations, and much, much more... This pleasantly penned volume, the author's revised edition of his 1898 work, is enhanced with a new fullname index.
