First Muster: 453rd Anniversary Commemoration

September 14 @ 10:00 am


The First Muster commemorates the initial muster of America’s first militia, the “ancestor” of today’s Florida National Guard.  Florida Living History, Inc., was invited to provide living-historians dressed in the garb and bearing the weapons of the 16th-century Spanish citizen-soldiers who formed America’s first militia. The event will also demonstrate the military arts of the period.

On September 16, 1565, Admiral Don Bartolomé Menéndez de Avilés, Don Pedro’s older brother and San Agustín’s first mayor, mustered the first militia troops in the continental United States. Their task was to defend the newly founded Spanish pueblo of San Agustín de la Florida (present-day St. Augustine, FL) against pending attack by the French.

This year, we will commemorate the 453rd anniversary of the first mustering of America’s original soldiers and the 453rd “birthday” of the National Guard of the United States. This event is made possible by Florida Living History Inc., in partnership with the Florida National Guard and Florida Department of Military Affairs.
