Upcoming Museum Exhibit

Thanks go to my mother for alerting me to this upcoming exhibit at the Orange County Regional History Center.  Read more about the exhibit here.

Quoted from the website: Florida in the Civil War highlights the state’s rarely acknowledged sacrifices and contributions in the "War between the States." Although often overlooked, Florida played an important role in the Civil War. The exhibit reveals how Florida overcame adversity to ship salt and beef to the Confederacy and how the state's citizens survived the Union blockade of its coastline.
