Eminent Florida history professor Michael Gannon dies at 89 - Miami Herald

Monday, May 01, 2017

French out of Florida was secondary. The Spanish got to Florida first. But 50 years later, the French horned in, setting up a major colony, Fort Caroline, at the mouth of the St. Johns River north of Jacksonville. Historians have long assumed that removing the French was Menendez's mission to Florida. But deep in the Archives of the Indies in Seville, Spain, Flagler College's Eugene Lyon discovered that Menendez came primarily as a speculator in Florida agriculture, forestry and shipbuilding. Menendez and King Philip II of Spain signed the contract before they had a clue the French were already here. Menendez founded St. Augustine, fended off a French attack, captured Fort Caroline and got on with his business of trying to make a fortune in Florida. And Lyon also found out a lot about regular Joes, like Alonso de Olmos. Olmos, a simple tailor who sewed the suits of cotton armor that Menendez's soldiers wore, now shows up in history alongside Menendez, Hernando de Soto and other luminaries of Spanish conquest. Who knows? Without tailoring by Olmos, St. Augustine might have been just another failed European settlement on the Atlantic coast instead of the oldest permanent city in North America, Gannon said. The New History of Floridareflects the explosion of Florida historical research made by the buildup of history departments at state universities, Gannon said. Faculty at eight state universities are among the authors. The University Press of Florida published The New History of Florida to celebrate the 150th anniversary of statehood. The big events have always been the outline of Florida history are there: conquest, statehood, the Civil War, railroads, the land boom of the 1920s, the military buildup of World War II, the influx of Northern retirees, the rise of tourism, the Cuban exodus to South Florida, moon shots from Cape Canaveral. More recent big developments are added, like the coming of Disney, the continuing transformation of Florida by immigration from Latin American and the Caribbean, Hurricane Andrew, and the fight to save the Everglades. But the book is as much about the churnings of American society during the past 25 years as it is about the long ago. Keepers of Florida's past have put it through the wringer of a democratizing movement called "social history." Traditional history focuses on the documents left behind by people who had authority or power. Occasionally, something jolts historians into recognizing that the people who cut the deals and leave paper trails behind -- the kings, governors, business magnates -- are not the only actors in history, said Duke University Professor Larry Goodwyn, an expert on social history. The civil rights movement shocked historians into the current social history mode, Goodwyn said. When blacks took to the streets three decades ago and chanted "I Am Somebody, " scholars -- particularly graduate and undergraduate students -- recognized traditional history was not telling the story of a lot of Americans. They set out to document the lives of the little guys who previously only showed up on the receiving end of actions by governors and magnates, Goodwyn said. Their work has been increasingly significant in histories of the past 15 years. In The New History of Florida, Menendez and De Soto still loom large. So do Henry Flagler and Henry Plant, whose railroad and resort empires pioneered modern Florida. But this time around, there's a lot more about Hispanics, blacks, Seminoles and Miccosukees, women and other ordinary people. And about how everybody got along, or didn't. Some of the authors say that if you want a good, easy-to- read history of Florida, pick up Gannon's 1993 book Florida: A Short History. The New History of Florida" can be rough going in spots. The new history is geare

Gregg Allman laid to rest next to brother Duane in Macon - Atlanta Journal Constitution

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Rose Hill Cemetery grave site. Allman died on May 27 at the age of 69 from complications due to liver cancer.Though Gregg Allman was born in Nashville, Tenn., and The Allman Brothers Band formed in Jacksonville, Fla., the iconic band’s creative home was Macon, home to their Capricorn Records label, which produced dozens of now-classic staples on rock radio – “Ramblin’ Man,” “Melissa” and “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More” among them.Local resident Amanda Williamson said she was proud that Allman was part of the musical history of Macon.“Being your hometown, it’s nice that it’s being recognized,” she said.A pack of limousines delivered family members to the chapel entrance on Cherry Street, which was closed to traffic.President Jimmy Carter, a longtime friend of Allman’s, attended with his son, Chip; they arrived in a white passenger van that zipped around to the back entrance.Cher, in a fashionable hat and black and white pants ensemble, exited a dark Suburban with her head down, wearing dark sunglasses and a somber expression.She and Carter shared a hug inside the chapel.Those in attendance during the intimate ceremony of fewer than 200 people included Live Nation Atlanta president Peter Conlon and Allman’s longtime publicist Ken Weinstein. They described a warm, loving presentation that focused on Allman’s dedication as a father.Eulogies were delivered by Allman children Devon, Delilah Island and Layla Brooklyn, as well as Duane Allman’s daughter Galadrielle, Allman’s trusted manager Michael Lehman and his lifelong friend Hewell “Chank” Middleton Jr. – all who knew that “Gregg Allman” was the performer, but “Gregory Allman” was the man.Among the sentiments shared was that Allman “healed himself with music and he healed the world with music.” The gathered flock sang the hymn “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?” before pallbearers Elijah Blue, Devon and Michael Allman, Trucks and Middleton carried the coffin out of the chapel.After the short procession from Snow’s Memorial Chapel to Rose Hill Cemetery – where more fans lined Riverside Drive - the gravesite ceremony commenced.As the 10-minute service concluded, Cher plucked a white rose from the flower blanket draping the coffin as she and several others paused at the fence surrounding the tombstones of Duane Allman and Oakley.Moments after the mourners departed, a freight train rumbled by a few hundred yards away — a powerful, final salute to Southern rock royalty.MORE ABOUT GREGG ALLMANRead and sign the online guestbookThe Allman Brothers Museum in Macon: The Big House still rocksFlashback: The Allman Brothers and Macon’s magical music history tourThe time Gregg Allman played a solo gig in Atlanta’s Music Midtown festivalFlashback: Gregg Allman overcame addictions and failure in his solo music careerFor updates on the death of Gregg Allman, follow the AJC Music Scene blog on Facebook or Twitter
