Carol Everhart Presents at Southwest Book Club
On Tuesday, October 13 members and guests of the Southwest Book Club came to hear Carol Everhart of Orlando talk about Florida history and lead the discussion for the month's book selection, A Land Remembered by Patrick D. Smith. Carol is a Florida Civil War enactor and Florida history enthusiast. She also brought along for display several artifacts from the book's historical period such as clothing, tools, currency and even a cracker whip! Snacks were provided which included hardtack which was the most convenient food for Civil War soldiers, explorers, pioneers, or anyone else who needed to be able to pack light and move fast. 20 people attended the event.
