Its streets made of brick and old forts made of coquina shells guide visitors on a journey through time, but there’s more to see in America’s oldest city. In this Florida Remembers, we explore St. Augustine’s founding father, reflect on a bloody battle fought by freed slaves and dig deep with archaeologists uncovering Florida’s historic past.
