Marched For Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay, Florida

Below is another excerpt from The Historical Magazine that printed the Diary of the Indian campaign in Florida of 1837-8, written by Capt. Electus Backus, U.S.A.

"From Black Creek he [Captain Electus Backus] marched for Tampa Bay on the 31st of December and arrived January 11, 1838."
