Event Description

Florida in the Civil War, created by the History Center, acknowledges the state’s often overlooked, important role in the “War between the Sates.” The state not only sent the largest percentage of troops to fight, but also contributed commodities to soldiers and their families throughout the South. Learn how Florida overcame adversity to ship salt and beef and how a doll helped smuggle medicine and supplies to the South during a Union blockade. Find out which Lincoln assassination conspirator has ties to Central Florida and is buried here. View items from the sunken Maple Leaf steamship, a Civil War-Era Colt revolver, and other rare artifacts. Hear music of the era, listen to letters exchanged between a soldier and his wife during the war, and children can try on clothing of the era. Included in general admission; special exhibition prices apply March 19-May 29, 2011.
