e court, and inform them that the convention was ready to ratify the ordinance and invite their attendance. Governor Perry, suffering an attack of sickness, could not be present at the signing of the ordinance, and his place was filled by the Hon. John Milton, governor-elect. After prayer by Bishop Rutledge the convention signed the ordinance before the assembled citizens of Florida, after which the president declared that the State of Florida was a free and independent State, and that all pollater rule were J. P. Anderson, James B. Dawkins, Robert B. Hilton, Jackson Morton, J. M. Martin, J. B. Owens, St. George Rogers, G. T. Ward and J. P. Sanderson. Florida's governors during the civil war were Madison S. Perry to November, 1861, John Milton from November, 1861, to April, 1865. The latter dying before the expiration of his term, A. K. Allison was acting governor until the close of the war, when he was arrested with other prominent officials, by military order, and imprisoned in F
The Federal blockade was established at all the important ports, and the sight of the enemy's war vessels was a common occurrence to the troops on the coast. Governor Milton sought to have the harbors protected, especially the important one of Apalachicola, and received notice from Secretary Walker, August 30th, that BrigadierGen-to add my respectful admiration for them and for every brave patriot who fell with them for their country's liberties. Col. J. P. Anderson, in a letter to Governor Milton, said of this engagement: You will have heard of the affair on Santa Rosa island on the morning of the 9th inst. The object of the expedition was fully and coesaw Mountain, Decatur, Jonesboro, Franklin, etc. The situation at this time outside of the Pensacola region is described in a letter of October 29th from Governor Milton to President Davis, in which he said that the Third regiment, commanded by Col. W. S. Dilworth, was scattered from Fernandina to the mouth of the St. John's,
wo companies had been detached and assigned to duty on the west side of the Chattahoochee river to protect the country lying between that point and Pensacola from raiding expeditions. Independent companies under Captains Thigpen, Smith, Blocker, Milton, with Partridge's, Leigh's, Smith's, Turner's and Pickett's independent cavalry, assisted by several other independent companies, were employed for the protection of other important points lying on the west side of the Suwannee river. The countorganized at Ocala as the Marion Light Artillery, with John M. Martin, captain; J. J. Dickison, first lieutenant; R P. McCants, second lieutenant, and Wm. Tidwell, third lieutenant. On the 4th of November, 1861, the company was ordered by Governor Milton to Fernandina, and instructed to call on Col. D. P. Holland for the battery of field pieces in his possession belonging to the State of Florida, with all its equipment, and to report to Brigadier-General Trapier, commanding district of Flori

They remained at Baldwin a short time, continuing their march on to by orders from Brigadier-General Gardner, who had been directed to assume command. Lieutenant Drury Rambo, Company A, Milton light artillery, was ordered to the front about 1 p. m., taking a Parrott gun forward by rail, but was informed that the ut.-Col. A.

r respective districts to be paroled. It was a bitter trial to these dauntless men to accept a situation so hard to realize; but with proud consciousness of having done their duty they laid down their arms, received their parole, bade farewell to their brave companions in arms and returned to the enjoyment once more of the endearments of home, beguiled by the hope that peace was restored. Alas! how evanescent so blissful a dream! Owing to the lamentable death of our patriotic governor, John Milton, Gen. A. K. Allison, president of the senate, filled the executive chair for a short time. The Hon. William Marvin was made provisional governor, and held the office, by appointment of the president of the United States, until the winter of 1865, when we were granted the privilege of an election by the people for our State officers. One of our supreme judges, David S. Walker, by the unanimous voice of a proud constituency, was made governor. Not long, a little over two years, were we p

Fifteenth Conf. Cav., Comdg. Outpost. Col. H. Maury, Commanding Eastern Division. Charleston, August 31, 1864. Gen. S. Cooper: Brig.-Gen. Wm. Miller has reported for duty in Florida. No orders have been received ordering him to report to me, but from the President's letter of the 9th inst. to Governor Milton, it seems the President intends that General Miller shall command the district of Florida. Is that his instruction? If so, I can relieve Brig.-Gen. J. K. Jackson and assign him to other duty. Sam Jones, Major-General. Special orders, no. 213. Adjutant and Inspector-General's Office, Richmond, September 8, 1864. Brig.-Gen. William Miller, Provisional Army Confederate States, will take command of the reserve forces of the State of Florida. He will complete their organization an
her places along the coast. The chief business of Colonel Davis' regiment was to watch the movements of the enemy carefully, and as far as possible to prevent raiding or scouting parties of the Federals from penetrating into the interior. Gov. John Milton was very much opposed to the raising of cavalry commands for the defense of Florida, insisting that nothing but artillery and infantry were needed for the defense of that State. The executive council of the State passed a resolution requestOn the 5th of May, 1863, he resigned his commission and retired from the military service of the Confederate States. Brigadier-General Joseph Finegan, a prominent lawyer and statesman in Florida before the war, was early in 1861 placed by Gov. John Milton at the head of military affairs in the State. He was commissioned brigadier-general on April 5, 1862, and from the 8th of that month until the battle of Olustee commanded the department or district of Middle and East Florida. The coast of
