Petition to Establish the East Florida Seminary in Alachua County, 1852

Petition to Establish the East Florida Seminary in Alachua County, 1852

Date
1852
Description
A petition calling upon the General Assembly to establish a seminary for East Florida at Newnansville, which was then the county seat for Alachua County. Written in 1852 and signed by 150 white male residents of Alachua County, the petition provides the names of a substantial number of the total population of Alachua County (2,524) in 1850. The petitioners envisioned the seminary as a military school, an institution of secondary or college education common in the antebellum South. The military aspects of the schools were primarily intended to provide discipline for the students, not to prepare them for a military career.
