New Blog: History of Gadsden County, Florida
In association with the release of my latest book, The Early History of Gadsden County, I have started a new page on the history of Gadsden County, Florida.
You can visit at http://gadsdencountyhistory.blogspot.com.
The new page focuses on the history, historic sites, culture, folklore and people of Gadsden County.
If you aren't familiar with this area, it is located between the Apalachicola and Ochlockonee Rivers just west of Tallahassee. Named for James Gadsden, a 19th century soldier and diplomat, Gadsden County has a rich history dating back to the Spanish era and has been the scene of a wide variety of fascinating historical events.
I'm launching the new page by excerpting a chapter from the book on the McLane Massacre, an incident of the Second Seminole War.
I hope you will drop by and, as always, feel free to comment or ask questions.
