Florida Keys Lighthouse (Landscape)
Cape Florida Lighthouse has a very long amazing & interesting history of violence, treachery, piracy and bloodshed. However, the eighteenth century found the beaches of Key Biscayne the happy hunting grounds of marauding pirates, wreckers, and bands of Indians. One especially notorious pirate, Black Caesar, terrorized this coast until he was caught and hanged in 1718. Over these precarious shores the rays from the fifteen lamps in Cape Florida Lighthouse first shone on December 17, 1825, but not without difficulties that foreshadowed the drama to come.
