|The Florida Maritime Museum is hosting a maritime lecture series presented by John Beale, Education and Volunteer Coordinator. A different topic will be featured each month from January through May of 2014. These lectures take place on the third Wednesday of the month at 3:00 p.m. at the Florida Maritime Museum.
The second installment of this series will take place on Wednesday, February 19th. John will be discussing the history of Privateers in Florida. Some call them pirates, buccaneers or freebooters but a Privateer was, legally at least, none of those things. In a 30 minute lecture find out about what makes a “legalized pirate”, review the risks and rewards of the trade, and learn about the Privateers that fought both for and against Florida.
These events are free but due to the popularity of the first FMM lecture and a limited seating capacity, reservations are now required. Guests who make confirmed reservations will be guaranteed a seat! Reserve today by contacting Halee Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (941) 708-6120
