British Influence

 

 

Most Americans know that the original thirteen colonies were founded by the British, either as crown colonies or as company  trading colonies or planting stations.  The colonies were founded upon drugs, booze and slaves organized and run by cartels to benefit a cabal of secretive orders.  (Tobacco, opium, rum, gin, cocaine)

During the Age of Mercantilism, when the predominant European powers (England, France, Spain, Netherlands) were competing for domination of the riches of the New World, the foundations of  many of today’s large multinational corporations and secret societies such as the Hell Fire Club and the Order of Skull and Bones, were formed and have morphed from the charters granted for land and trade by the crowned heads or republican governments of European nations, and later by United States cartels, monopolies, and government bureaucracies.

Commercial hegemony empires  interlocking network of trades society’s welfare secondary to the needs of the government, kings granted individuals or companies special privileges of supply certain good or services to the citizenry as a monopoly  legally secure from threat of competition, shoddy goods, lack luster services, after the Industrial Age the consumer, not the supplier became sovereign.
When the Florida Parishes from the Pearl to the Mississippi, was considered Great Britain’s fourteenth  colony.  Known as the Manchac District of British West Florida, it was awarded to Great Britain by the Treaty of  Paris 1763, which ended the Seven Years War, known in America as the French and Indian War or King William’s War.

Battle of Lake Pontchartrain  September Oliver Pollock, the commercial agent of Congress at New Orleans, had supervision of naval affairs on the Mississippi River and was authorized to commission both vessels and officers for the Continental service and for privateers. In commissioning and fitting out vessels and in otherwise executing the orders of Congress, Pollock was encouraged and assisted by the Spanish governor of Louisiana, Bernardo de Galvez, who was very friendly to American interests. In 1778, Pollock purchased the ship Rebecca, one of several prizes taken on the Mississippi by a party of Americans under Captain James Willing, who had come down the river from Ohio. A year later this vessel, renamed the Morris, had been armed with twenty-four guns, fully manned, under the command of Captain William Pickles, and ready for sea, when she

  was unfortunately destroyed by a hurricane, August 18, 1779,
  and eleven of her crew were lost. Governor Galvez then provided
  an armed schooner for the use of the Americans; this vessel seems
  also to have been called the Morris, or Morris's tender. Pickles
  cruised in this schooner and "Captur'd in Septr. a Vessell
  of very superior force in Lake Ponchetrain, after a very severe
  conflict." (Pap. Cont. Congr., 50, 9 (September 18, 1782)

after a very severe conflict.” (Pap. Cont. Congr., 50, 9 (September 18, 1782) ; Sparks MSS., xli, 42.) The prize was a British sloop called the West Florida. She was fitted out by Pollock and under the command of Pickles cruised on Lake Pontchartrain during the fall and captured a British settlement. The surrender of the British posts on the Mississippi to Galvez soon followed. Later the West Florida assisted the governor in the capture of Mobile and then proceeded to Philadelphia, where she was sold out of the service (Pap. Cont. Congr., 19, 5, 193 (July 10, 1780), 37, 251, 535, 537, 541 (January 20, June 7, November 20, December 5, 1780), 50, 1-13, 66, 77-81, 97, 120-125; Jour. Cont. Congr., July 10, December 8,1780; Sparks MSS., xli, 7, 10, 16, 22, 23, 36, 41, 42; Penn. Gazette, June 7, 1780; Almon, ix, 359-365; Stopford-Sackville MSS., 122; Paullin, 307-311.)Through Commo
