THE FOUNDING OF ST. AUGUSTINE 2016 HISTORICAL RE-ENACTMENT

Four hundred and fifty-one years ago, on September 8, 1565, Capitán-General Don Pedro Menéndez de Avilés stepped ashore at Matanzas Bay and founded St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest continuously occupied, European city, port, and parish in the continental United States.

On Saturday, September 10, 2016, the annual, historical re-enactment of Menéndez’ landing and anniversary commemoration was presented by the volunteers of non-profit Florida Living History, Inc. ( www.floridalivinghistory.org ), at the traditional site of Menéndez’ landing – Mission Nombre de Dios ( www.missionandshrine.org ) – the Birthplace of America and Cradle of Christianity in the continental United States, in St. Augustine, Florida.
