Senator David Yulee, the architect of Florida’s statehood, supported her withdrawal from the Union. The flag of the Confederacy would fly over Fort Clinch. Legend has it that the Amelia Island Williams House was visited by Confederate President Jefferson Davis. He assigned General Robert E. Lee the task of examining coastal defenses south of the Carolinas, but after visiting the Island he recognized Fernandina’s vulnerability. Soon word of a Union Flotilla of twenty-eight gunboats reached Fernandina. On March 3, 1862 residents of Amelia along with her troops marched off the island. Without even a fight Union soldiers again raised the American Flag at Fort Clinch. The Hearthstone Williams House was used as their headquarters and as an infirmary for injured troops.
