First Muster 2019
On Friday, Sept. 13, 2019, Florida Living History, Inc., in partnership with the Florida National Guard, will commemorate the 454th anniversary of the first mustering of America’s original citizen-soldiers.
Four hundred and fifty-four years ago, on September 16, 1565, Admiral Don Bartolomé Menéndez de Avilés, Don Pedro’s older brother and San Agustín’s first mayor, mustered the first militia troops in the continental United States to defend the newly founded Spanish pueblo of San Agustín de la Florida (present-day St. Augustine, FL) against pending attack by the French.
