The American Revolution in Florida: The Siege of Pensacola, 1781
As supporters of the Patriot cause during the revolution, the Spanish took up arms to defend against the British and further their gains on a competitive world stage. They participated in an extensive campaign along the Gulf Coast, which culminated in the 1781 Siege of Pensacola.
Historian Dr. David Head, UCF, tells the story of the Siege of Pensacola and its importance to the international story of American independence. This event is FREE and online. If you are unable to attend at 10 a.m., you can still view a recording for up to 7 days if you register in advance.
This program is funded by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Ormond Beach Historical Society.
