Eliot Kleinberg has spent nearly four decades as a reporter, including more than a quarter-century at The Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach. He will detail how Florida was the third state to secede from the Union, and played a much more strategic role than most history books let on. Learn about Florida’s role in the blockade, its critical battles, the tragedy of its governor, the veterans who founded many Florida cities, and how some people are still fighting the war.
