Hidden History of Florida
with author James C. Clark

Back by popular demand after a sold-out presentation last season! Florida has a history as diverse as its residents. And much of that is still hidden. Since the arrival of the Spanish in 1513, the state has played host to strange stories. A heartbroken senator entered a mental institution over unrequited love for an heiress. Thousands of British pilots trained in flight schools across the state. And the true, and darker, story of Pocahontas is linked with the “first barbecue.” Author and historian James C. Clark unearths a history hidden beneath swamps and sand for years.
