Jail Break

Tuesday, May 1st, 8:30 am – 5:00pm
“Hey, Hey the First of Mai,
Jean Ribault Arrived Today.”
Legend has it that Captain Jean Ribault
sailed around Amelia Island on May 1st, 1562 on his way to selecting the site for the
French colony of Fort Caroline.
He named the island Isle de Mai.
On Tuesday, May 1, 2018, Jail Breakers will travel by motor coach to Jacksonville
where they will begin their day with
a guided tour of the Jacksonville Arboretum. That will be followed by a ranger led tour of the reconstruction and museum of
Fort Caroline, a picnic lunch and then a private tour of the Fort Caroline Archives. During the private tour,
Jail Breakers will have the rare treat of seeing the 1591 DeBry illustrated book,
A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia.
DeBry based his etchings on the water colors of Jacques Le Moyne.
