Gene Jones

FLORIDA CIVIL WAR & SUWANNE DIVIDE

The noted author and local historian Gene Jones, will give an A/V presentation on Florida’s history and its little known role in the Civil War conflict. (A $5 fee will be charged at the door to help in the preservation of the Green Street Church which badly needs ceiling work.) Reserve your ticket by calling 941-474-3764.

 Following the presentation, Jones will read excerpts from his popular historical fiction novel Suwannee Divide, a gripping tale of Florida during the War. A Q&A and book signing will follow the reading.   History and Civil War buffs alike will enjoy this factual novel about Florida during the time of the Civil War, experiencing the tumult through the eyes of historical personalities and fictional characters. Suwannee Divide conveys how the will to survive prevails. Jones is a wealth of information. Listening to this touching tale with memorable characters, vivid battle scenes, and the emotion-stirring desperation of those who lived through the War will totally absorb audiences.
