Stearns published American Naturalist

R​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​. E. C. Stearns published American Naturalist: Rambles in Florida (Links to an external site.) in 1869, just four years after the end of the Civil War. Considering that he begins his journey in New York, and goes south to Florida, and the North defeated the South in the Civil War, what do you think the message is of the descriptive essay? Where does he show that message? Or, what do you think the purpose of his “rambles” are? Use the Stearns​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​’s essay to help prove your point. (Please note: you are not just limited to Part 1 for this assignment. If you need better quotes for your argument from different parts of “Rambles in Florida” then please feel free to use them.) Also, you will need to argue different points of your thesis and quotes from the story (at least two per body paragraph) which you analyze as evidence, and you need to have a conclusion that sums up your argument​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​.
