In the summer of 1851, General Narcisco López launched a Cuban filibuster movement from Jacksonville, Florida. This was the third consecutive year that López had led expeditions against Spanish colonial rule in Cuba, the first two having originated in New Orleans in 1849 and 1850. All were based on the model of the Texas Republic, hoping to obtain independence for Cuba through the use of American volunteers, weapons and funds, and to later petition for admission to the Union. In 1851, López broadened the front, organizing Cuban invasion battalions in New Orleans, Savannah, New York City, and Jacksonville. Volunteers were mustered, funds were collected, and military drills were held while the Cuban flag waved in city streets. In Jacksonville, the Cuban filibuster activities generated intense interest and involved a number of community leaders. Local newspapers reported these events for over a year, yet they have never been explored in published histories of Jacksonville. While historians have analyzed these events during the War of Independence (1895-1898), little attention has been

The city of Jacksonville has long been a center of health care in Florida. The Duvall County medical society formed in 1853 and was actively engaged in health care and public health efforts in the city. The State Board of Health was centered in Jacksonville and its library was said in 1953 to be the largest in the country. Jacksonville physicians were among the most active in campaigning to bring a medical and dental school to the state. The city also was the home for a large number of hospitals, including one for the African American population, a children’s hospital and, briefly, a special hospital ship for treating venereal disease. The presence of so many hospitals, especially the Duvall County Hospital, made possible early residency training. Jacksonville began to train residents in 1927.
