World War I National Crisis Day Proclamation, 1917

Significant Documents
Description
The First World War erupted in Europe during the summer of 1914, becoming the bloodiest conflict in world history to that time. The United States remained neutral, although the sympathies of most Americans lay firmly with the Allied nations of Great Britain, France, Italy, and (until 1917) Russia. Germany's resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare and publication of the Zimmerman Telegram in early 1917 led President Woodrow Wilson to ask Congress for a declaration of war in April. Sidney Johnston Catts served as Florida's governor during the war years. The controversial governor had lost the Democratic nomination in 1916, but had run on the Prohibition ticket in the general election and defeated his Democratic and Republican opponents. A biographer stated of Catts: ||many loved him as a clerical messiah come to save the abused farmers and laborers of Florida; others despised him as a cynical hypocrite who used his ministerial office to seduce gullible Baptists, while repudiating in private the morality he proclaimed publically.|| (1) During the nineteenth months that the United States took part in World War I, more than 40,000 Floridians served in the military, a number of training bases were established in the state, Floridians purchased millions of dollars in Liberty Bonds, and the state's farmers grew tons of food for the Allied war effort. To promote this last endeavor, Governor Catts proclaimed May 6, 1917 as National Crisis Day to urge Florida farmers to produce more food, and to encourage food conservation throughout the state. A copy of Catts's proclamation is reproduced here.

Steamboat Company Documents, 1885, 1887

Significant Documents
Description
Hubbard L. Hart was a native of Guildford, Vermont who was born on May 4, 1827. In 1852 he moved to Savannah, Georgia, and opened a stagecoach line that carried U.S. mail. Three years later he moved to Florida and opened a similar line linking Palatka and Tampa. By 1860 he had built a wharf at Palatka and operated a general store. That same year he purchased the steamboat James Burt and shortly thereafter the Silver Spring. During the Civil War, Hart carried supplies for the Confederacy. After the war he purchased additional vessels, cleared obstructions from the Ocklawaha River, and began transporting goods and passengers along the river. By the late 1860s, northern visitors began to flock to Florida, and Silver Springs became a popular destination. During the late 1800s, Hart's steamboat line prospered, and he also became involved in the citrus industry, the hotel business, and railroad and canal development. By the early 1890s, competition from railroads began to affect Hart's steamboat operations, but they still remained profitable during the winter months. In December 1895, Hart died as a result of a fall from a trolley car in Atlanta, Georgia. Hart's successors, however, continued to ply the Ocklawaha on steamboats into the 1920s. The two documents reproduced here relate to the operation of Hart's steamboat line. The first is a request from a Baltimore steamboat company for Hart to provide prices for an Ocklawaha cruise. The second letter, written by Hart, discusses the operation of his steamboat line and possible sale of one or more boats, competition from the railroads, and whom he will employ as an engineer.
