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.

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.

    Just a morsel

    0 2/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Delaplaine's 2014 Long Weekend Guide to Fort Myers & Sanibel (Kindle Edition) This book has a few hints about things to see and do, as well as some lodging options. It is far from exhaustive however. Perhaps the most frustrating part is that literally half the book is listing other publications by the same author! In my opinion, not worth the money. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 29, 2014

This review is from: The Old Guard, Fort Myer, Virginia Challenge Coin The Old Guard, Fort Myer, Virginia Challenge Coin is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. It has the heft and feel of a genuine memorial coin made of durable material. Polished as it is to a high gloss it provokes many show offs to family and friends.
