Cowboys & Lawyers

Attorneys & Judges played a major role in developing Florida’s 19th Century Citrus Belt, and so, Fridays throughout 2020, Cowboys & Lawyers will pay tribute to a different courageous lawmaker who traveled central Florida’s wilderness via horseback.

My central Florida history blog features extraordinary events and/or people of the 19th century that shaped the land as we know and love it today. On each Friday in 2020, Cowboys & Lawyers, beginning January 3, 2020, will celebrate a different lawyer (some of whom became Judges) and the role they played in the story of Florida’s Citrus-Belt – aka – America’s 19th Century Paradise.

First up will be Daniel Randolph Mitchell of Rome, Georgia – founder of 1874 Tuskawilla and an 8,133 acres wilderness known today as The Mitchell Grant, aka Mitchell Hammock.
