About this book
Located on the wide and beautiful Caloosahatchee River, just fifteen miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers, the fabled "City of Palms," is known throughout the world for its tropical weather and many local attractions. Exotic flowers and shrubbery dot the city landscape, which today includes a revitalized downtown, inviting neighborhoods, endless shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. Like many Florida communities, the origin of Fort Myers can be traced to the Seminole Indian wars of the 1800s. The fort itself-named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers-was established in the frontier region to quell uprisings and help in the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces during the Civil War, was abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business, and citrus and vegetable farming to sustain their families and their new town. As the years passed, Fort Myers grew and began to attract winter visitors, including such famous Americans as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, both of whom had homes in the area, as well as wealthy sportsmen eager to try their luck at tarpon fishing in nearby Gulf waters. When the railroad finally reached Fort Myers, tourists, transplants, retirees, and many more would discover the irresistible charms of one of Florida's newest gems.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
Fort Myers lies on the beautiful, wide Caloosahatchee River. Tropical flowers and palm trees dot the landscape, which today boasts a revitalized downtown, historic neighborhoods, shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. The fort itself, named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers, was established to quell uprisings and help the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces in the Civil War, abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business and farming to sustain families and the community. In the late 1800s, Fort Myers began to attract famous winter residents, such as "electrician" Thomas Edison, as well as wealthy sportsmen trying their luck at tarpon fishing. When the "iron horse" finally arrived in 1904, Fort Myers experienced an economic transformation, and her days as a frontier cow town were numbered.

    0 5/5 ChrisInNaples (San Diego, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Day Hiking Southwest Florida: A Guide to the Best Trail Adventures in Greater Naples and Fort Myers (A Florida Quincentennial Book) (Paperback) This book was exactly what I was looking for. It starts with the Table of Contents which simply tells you which page the details for each hike is on, then the Hike Locator Map so you have an idea where the hikes are without having to look up each one individually, then a Hike at a Glance section so that you can easily narrow your choices by length, difficulty, or what you will see, then the main part of the book which describes each hike and has the perfect amount of detail to get more out of it. We have had this book for a month and have done five hikes so far, and this book goes with us each time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 3, 2015

    A wonderful collection of the history and imagery of Fort Myer Virginia

    0 5/5 Peter W Ackers - See all my reviews This review is from: Fort Myer (Images of America) (Paperback) I thoroughly enjoyed Fort Myer (Images of America) John Michael has provided us a window to the history of a place that resonates throughout the past 150+ years of the U.S. military. The images of First Flight and the Guns Platoon are personal favorites. I recommend this as a must have for those lovers of our heritage and the hallowed ground of a place that evokes a deep reverence for those who have served and sacrificed so much.Hats of to the author for this outstanding homage to history of Fort MyerPeter W AckersWatch Squad 1990-1991Guns PlatoonHotel Company 3rd U.S. Infantry The Old Guard 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 9, 2011
