Egmont Key - A History
Saturday, January 5, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM (EST)
Join us in this informative presentation and book-signing about Egmont Key by co-authors, Donald and Carol Thompson.
For hundreds of years, Egmont Key has been a strategic sentinel for ships coming into Tampa Bay from the Gulf of Mexico. The island's vast history reflects the major events that took place in Florida and the US with the Seminole Wars, the Civil War, Spanish-American War and WWI and WWII. In recent years, people have enjoyed the beaches, explored the ruins of Ft. Dade, and walked on the the red brick "roads to nowhere." Authors, Donald and Carol Thompson bring an appreciation of Egmont Key and "an understanding of its place in history."
2 to 3:30 pm.
