A contingent from the St. Augustine Garrison has been sent to Cedar Key to help protect the towns folks and try to keep some semblance of order. It is rumored that the pirates will be setting up camp in the city park and taking over Dock Street until the treasure is found. With the Garrison in town as well, this will NOT end quietly...
