This powerpoint covers the history of the first free African American settlement in the United States. The African American settlement was located close to St. Augustine, Florida. The freed slaves called the settlement Fort Mose. Slaves escaping the English colonies of Georgia and South Carolina would flee south to Florida to hopefully gain their freedom in Spanish controlled Florida. This powerpoint can also be used to teach Spanish, English, and Native influence in the development of Florida.
