2022 Tuesdays At Two: Florida in the Civil War - The Vermont Volunteers, the Maine Cavalry, U.S. Colored Troops, and The Battle of Marianna with Dale Cox
Corinne Costin Gibson Memorial Public Library presents its 2022 Tuesdays at Two Guest Speaker Series with: Florida in the Civil War: The Vermont Volunteers, the Maine Cavalry, U.S. Colored Troops, and The Battle of Marianna with Dale Cox.
The Battle of Marianna was a small but significant engagement in the Florida Panhandle in September 1864. Join us for an account of the brutal fighting between "The Homeguard" - old men and boys too young to enlist - against the Maine Cavalry, the Vermont Volunteers, and the US Colored Troops, culminating in a fiery battle at St. Luke's Episcopal Church and Cemetery in nearby Jackson County.
