Florida in the Civil War? Believe it!

Did you know Florida was the third state to secede from the Union? Eliot Kleinberg discusses the strategic role Florida played in the Civil War at the Lightner Museum.

The Lightner Museum and the Florida Humanities Council are thrilled to welcome The Palm Beach Post reporter, Eliot Kleinberg, as part of the Florida Humanities Speaker Series.  Mr. Kleinberg will discuss how Florida played a far more strategic role in the Civil War than most history books let on. While Florida might be the most “northern” southern state now, it was the the third to secede, and very significant during the war. Learn about Florida’s role in the blockade, its critical battles, the tragedy of its governor, and the veterans
