Plantations, cotton and slavery were a big part of middle Florida’s economy by 1860 and the election of a new President challenged that lifestyle. Florida Footprints follows the path the state took once it chose to march down “The Confederate Road.” From slavery and plantations to salt making and soldiers, we explore the skirmishes, battles, and life in Florida during the Civil War.
