A Casualty of the Revolutionary War

This site was part of an indigo plantation belonging to the estate of John Perceval, 2nd Earl of Egmont. After Lord Perceval's death in 1770, his executors sent Stephen Egan to manage the East Florida estate. Under Egan's supervision, Egmont became a prosperous indigo plantation. However in 1776 the plantation was plundered and destroyed by the Georgia Militia, causing Egan to flee with his family and the Egan slaves. They took shelter in another plantation on the St. John's River, closer to the safety of British troops in St. Augustine.
