Florida in the Civil War? Believe it!

January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free
Eliot Kleinberg

Eliot Kleinberg

Eliot Kleinberg has served as a reporter for the Palm Beach Post for 30 years, including writing a weekly local history column. He has written nine books on Florida and is currently completing his 10th novel, Peace River, a work of historical fiction set at the end of the Civil War. Though not often associated with the Civil War, Florida was actually the third state to secede and played a more strategic role in the war than most think. This talk will discuss Florida’s blockades, critical battles, and cavalries and battalions.

No registration required. For more information visit manateevillage.org
