This chapter creates an expansive view of the Caribbean as another Mediterranean with its own Ottoman Empires and yet, thanks to Woolson, with an early sense of hemispheric connectedness. The result is a transformative return to Woolson’s Great Lakes “islands” as well as a vision of Florida dubbed as “ the crossroads of culture,” a matter of some moment for a transnational writer who would later embrace Europe.

Keywords:   Caribbean, Mediterranean, Great Lakes islands, Florida
