My most interesting Primary source would have to be documents collected from the Florida Historical Society. Ive been struggling to find sources in all honesty, and in many ways regret choosing the topic that i did. Maybe i am not looking in the right places, but I'm finding it difficult to find primary sources that pertain to the climate in Florida and more specifically its impact on a successful colonization of the new world. The sources i have found however, have been helpful. Documents ive found through the Florida Historical Society give insight as to how settlers were affected by unfamiliar climate patterns. This leads to the thesis of my paper, which argues the success of european settlers in america was dependent on their ability to adapt to their environmental surroundings.
