Lecture: On This Kind of Land: Cattle Country Patterns in Florida

Time: 6:00 pm til 8:00 pm

Location: Mission San Luis

Description: Join us at Mission San Luis when historian Dr. Amy Turner Bushnell discusses raising and hunting cattle in Florida during the seventeenth century and beyond. Bushnell finds parallels to Early Florida’s cattle countries in the Greater Antilles, the Argentine Pampas, the Amazonian Llanos, the pine barrens of North America’s Eastern Woodlands, the arid reaches of Greater Mexico, and the savannas and marshes of Low Countries in the Americas.

Before the United States’ renowned West of trail drives and gunslingers, the Americas had seen three and a half centuries of cattle countries come and go. Florida’s cattle-raising past is an offshoot of the long history of Spanish influence in America.
