Florida History: The Civil War through the 1870s- August 14, 1-3 p.m.
The Civil War had a tremendous impact on American society. Just what sort of role did it play in Florida, though? The Sunshine State was a very different place circa 1861, but at the same time, many Secession Era issues are similar to what is debated today. From military conscription to state's rights, Confederate Florida was a complicated place. Reconstruction made things even murkier, causing new problems after it solved old ones. Discover a very different side of our state; one that instills pride and revulsion to this very day. Residents: FREE, Non-Residents: $5.
