Florida's Black public officials, 1867-1924 by Canter Brown( )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canter Brown's groundbreaking study reveals the magnitude and impact of African American leadership in Florida during the post-Civil War era, with emphasis on the complications and challenges that developed as leadership patterns and traditions evolved."--BOOK JACKET. "This first statewide study of African American leadership in Florida from the closing days of the Civil War until the last two members of a racially integrated town council left office in 1924 shows that many African Americans were influential officeholders in powerful Florida politics. Not merely a local occurrence, this leadership was inspired by the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) and later supported by the national labor organization the Knights of Labor."--BOOK JACKET. "In addition to providing context and a historical narrative of black leadership in post-Civil War Florida, this work includes an extensive biographical directory of more than 600 officeholders and demonstrates that black officials were major forces in Florida politics who labored against increasingly difficult odds to maintain a voice in public affairs."--BOOK JACKET

Florida's Peace River frontier by Canter Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peace River is a location near Lake Hancock, north of present-day Bartow. Seminole hunting towns on Peace River lay in a five or six mile wide belt of land centered on and running down the river from Lake Hancock to below present-day Fort Meade. Oponay, who also was named Ochacona Tustenatty, was sent into Florida as a representative to the Seminoles on behalf of the Creek chiefs remaining loyal to the United States during the Seminole War. Oponay occupied the land adjacent to Lake Hancock and Saddle Creek. Peter McQueen and his party occupied the area to the south of Bartow. Quite likely their settlement included the remains of Seminole lodges and other facilities located on the west bank near the great ford of the river at Fort Meade. This important strategic position would have allowed the Red Sticks (Indians) to control not only access to the hunting grounds to the south, but communication and the trade with the Cuban fishermen at Charlotte Harbor, as well as the passage of representatives of Spain and England through the harbor
