Massacre of the French in Florida 1565
Hurricane shipwrecks french sailors during their little land squabble with Spain. Some Indians notice their predicament and tell the Spaniards there are white skins on the beach. The french are easily outnumbered, outgunned and surrender 5x5. Each and every group is taken by fives in rowboats out of view of their comrades, the Spanish execute by cutting and dump the bodies in the water, eventually staining it red. After several hundred, give or take, the water soon took on an apocalyptic dread image, and the Spanish named it Matanzas, which means massacre, on October 12th. No wonder St. Augustine is haunted, and this is just a story we know about. Come to think of it, the entirety of the Florida peninsula could be cursed from the restless dead, victims of violent acts, or their demonic counterparts left in this dimension beneath invisible veils, forever sleeping, but never truly dead. Their minds of malicious intent seeping psychic energy from the sinkholes that dot the landscape. Millennia of it's inhabitants shedding another tribe's blood, in dark vocations of ancient rites, long forgotten, but never truly left out of man's dim and limitless subconscious. Like bottomless pit. We become hijacked, ridden by those creatures therein who strive to reach out and deviate destiny to their inhuman, profane deliverance. The color of the beast green, painted red with the blood of innocents.

"Jean Ribault sailed on September 10 to attack and wipe out the Spanish at St. Augustine, but a hurricane carried his ships far to the south, wrecking them on the Florida coast between present-day Daytona Beach and Cape Canaveral.

At the same time, Menéndez led a force to attack Fort Caroline. Since most of the soldiers were absent, Menéndez was easily able to capture the French settlement, killing most of the men in the battle.

He then learned from Timucuan Indians that a group of white men were on the beach a few miles south of St. Augustine. He marched with 70 soldiers to where an inlet had blocked 127 of the shipwrecked Frenchmen trying to get back to Fort Caroline.

With a captured Frenchman as translator, Menéndez described how Fort Caroline had been captured and urged the French to surrender. Rumors to the contrary, he made no promises as to sparing them. Having lost most of their food and weapons in the shipwreck, the French did surrender. Francisco Mendoza, the Chaplain accompanying Menéndez, requested the chance to offer survival for those found to be Catholics, most refused. 111 Frenchmen were killed. Only sixteen were spared - a few who professed being Catholic, some impressed Breton sailors, and four artisans needed at St. Augustine.

Two weeks later the sequence of events was repeated. More French survivors appeared at the inlet, including Jean Ribault. On October 12 Ribault and his men surrendered and met their fate. This time 134 were killed. From that time, the inlet was called Matanzas -- meaning "slaughters" in Spanish."

Who cares? My point is... blood has been spilled on this particular track of land for as long as man's held dominion over the earth... And the dead never truly rest, as energy is transferred, the negative and positive separate into different bodies, coalescing in the nether beneath our very feet, the same will happen to us sometime or another.
