1899 School Cadets in Tampa

  • Cadets in Schoolyard

    A Compelling Offer

    In 1899, Governor Bloxham of Florida sent an invitation to the city of Toronto to send a group of cadets to Florida to support his efforts to introduce cadet training in his state. The city and the school board took him up on the offer and the cadet company visited, much to the delight of their American hosts.
