Florida Maritime History

Course number : HS120   
« back to classes page
The palette of Florida history is drawn on its waters. The men and women who sailed them are the subjects of this course. It is composed of tales that turn on sleeping sentries and a maddened gardener - tales with the imprint of emperors and kings, generals and admirals, and heroism and cowardice. The course spans 14,000 years. We’ll discuss canoe makers, U-boat captains, Teddy Roosevelt, and a near-crazy
Cuban who thwarted the burning of Tampa. It is a rich, complex adventure as humans adapted to the nautical, geographic, meteorological, and political realities of this unique peninsula called Florida.
