Boazio, an Italian who worked in London, made maps to illustrate accounts of English expeditions and campaigns. This engraved, hand-colored map or view-plan depicts Sir Francis Drake's attack on Saint Augustine on May 28-29, 1586. Drake captured and burned the fort and town during his Caribbean campaign against Spanish holdings. The map is oriented with north to the right. The town is in the upper left corner of the map and designated by the letter L, which is described in the legend as: “The town of Saint Augustine where dwelled a hundred and fifty Spanish soldiers.” The “town house” (letter M) and church (letter O) are depicted.

A rendition of St. Augustine and the fort in 1733. Notice the area marked "long sandy bay." This permanent barrier, created by ocean currents, kept larger ships from coming closer to the town for fear of getting stuck.
