Virtual Program: General Jackson, President Monroe, and the Florida Territory
January 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at 7:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, January 13 as we welcome Hermitage’s Director of Education Erin Adams and Highland’s Manager of Education Programs Nancy Stetz for a virtual conversation examining Florida’s chaotic entry into the Union, involving Seminoles, enslaved and free Blacks, self-emancipated individuals, and Spanish, British and American forces. The correspondence between General Jackson and President Monroe sheds light on Jackson’s invasion of Florida and the relationship between the two men – figures who bridged the 18th and 19th centuries – and the broader impact of their actions on indigenous tribes and the enslaved families at the Hermitage and Highland.
