Here I am on #ameliaisland in #Florida still. I am sitting next to a #statue of a #jewish #senator who served #antebellum named David Levy #yulee. Here is his #wikipedia entrance: (born David Levy; June 12, 1810 – October 10, 1886) as an American politician and attorney. Born in St. Thomas, then under British control, he was of Sephardi Jewish ancestry: his father was from Morocco and his mother from Europe. The family moved to Florida when he was a child, and he grew up there on their extensive lands. He later served as Florida’s territorial delegate to Congress. Yulee was the first person of Jewish ancestry to be elected and serve as a United States Senator. He founded the Florida Railroad Company and served as president of several other companies, earning the nickname of “Father of Florida Railroads.” In 2000 he was recognized as that year’s “Great Floridian” by the state.#nomakeup #nofilter #rescuedog #dogsofinstagram #huskymix #dog
