Ribault acted hastily against the Spanish and it didn’t help that his fleet encountered a storm that destroyed them. The Spanish would eliminate the French from America for the time being. But in the wake of this atrocity against the French, Dominique de Gourgues would gather ships and men together to save the grace of France. Forgive and forget not this time.
The mural below was painted by Lee Adams, courtesy of the Jacksonville Public Library.
