A Land Remembered by Patrick Smith and the The Singing River by Joe Warner are excellent books for the history of Manatee and Southern Florida. As you mentioned Fort Ogden and Fort Winder, there is a lot of history there in times and in people and the spread of the railroads, names that still exist in Manatee County. I once saw an archival picture of Pine Level when it was the County seat and the Law Offices lined Florida Avenue, with a school, and church.

Thank you for the reminder and to quote Henry Parrish, "If you want to get rid of people in this area, get rid of mosquito control and air conditioning."
