A perennial favorite EIHS presenter returns! Acclaimed author and historian Robert N. Macomber will relate the fascinating, true tale of a young mixed-marriage couple who became pro-Union refugees on southwest Florida’s Useppa Island during the US Civil War. It’s a story of love, war, the bitter-sweet Christmas of 1863, and a woman’s incredible resilience against daunting odds, with a poignant legacy that has lasted to this day.
