Program Description:

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.

Reception with light refreshments to follow.
Free admission and parking. Handicap accessible. No RSVP required. Seating on a first come, first served basis.
Open to the public. Ages 13 & up recommended.
