Historical re-enactors from Florida Living History, and Florida Guard soldiers and airmen, line the parade field in front of the St. Francis Barracks, during the Florida National Guard's First Muster ceremony in St. Augustine, Fla., Sept. 13, 2013. The “first muster” took place on Sept. 16, 1565, when Pedro Menendez de Aviles gathered around him the soldiers of his small Spanish army, as well as the civilian settlers who accompanied him to the newly established presidio town of St. Augustine.
