Lecture: Florida in the Civil War? Believe it!

Time: 2:00 pm til 3:00 pm

Location: Manatee Village Historical Park, 1404 Manatee Ave E, Bradenton, Florida 34208

Description: Florida Humanities Speaker Series: "Florida in the Civil War? Believe it!" by Elliot Kleinberg

America’s now in the 150th anniversary “window” (1861-1865; 2011-2015) and while Florida might be the most “northern” southern state now, it was the third to secede, 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, and the veterans who founded many Florida cities, and how some people are still fighting the war. And why the war is the reason Florida has 18 million people!

Free admission and parking. No RSVP required, seating on a first come, first served basis.
Open to the public. Ages 13 & up recommended.

Manatee Village Historical Park is proud to be a Florida Humanities Council (FHC) Speaker Series partner.

Lecture: Florida Transportation History: Planes, Trains, & Automobiles

Time: 5:30 pm til 7:00 pm

Location: Manatee Village Historical Park, 1404 Manatee Ave E, Bradenton, Florida 34208

Description: Florida Humanities Speaker Series: “Florida Transportation History: Planes, Trains, & Automobiles (& Steamboats!)” by Steve Noll

Florida’s history as territory and state can be told through the changing methods of transportation designed to move people and goods both to Florida and within Florida. Examining the changing transportation networks in the state, this presentation shows how Florida moved from a backwoods frontier to one of the most important states in the union. Tying transportation history to social history, this presentation moves from the Bellamy Road of the 1820s to the modern transportation issues facing the Sunshine State in the 21st century.

Free admission and parking. No RSVP required, seating on a first come, first served basis.
Open to the public. Ages 13 & up recommended.

Lecture: Vertebrate Fossils & Cultural Modification

Time: 7:00 pm til 8:00 pm

Location: Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, 1800 Weedon Dr NE, St Pete

Description: Archaeology Lecture Series - Vertebrate Fossils & Cultural Modification by Robert Sinibaldi, Ph.D.

The cultural modification of bones, antlers, and teeth by Paleoindians and those Native Americans that followed could constitute a book unto itself. Join the The Alliance for Weedon Island Archaeological Research and Education in cunjuction with the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society for a presentation from Dr. Robert Sinibldi on the subjects of his latest book What Your Fossils Can Tell You: Vertebrate Morphology, Pathology, and Cultural Modification. As a rule of thumb many use the 10,000 year mark as a limit for what is fossilized and what is considered sub-fossil. Therefore in North America there is a short geological window where culturally modified items of bone, antler, and teeth could also be fossilized. Many of the items that will be presented might be considered sub-fossil – however, they could/should still represent culturally what could have existed during the Paleoindian time period.
