Third Thursday Lecture Series: Florida Pirates – Fact & Fiction
September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Did Gasparilla really plunder the Spanish Main from a hideout in Southwest Florida? Was there treasure buried throughout the Ten Thousand Islands? Who was Black Caesar and did he really keep captives on Captiva Island? We’ll try to separate the truth from the tall tales during this talk about pirate history.
Join us at the Museum of the Everglades every month for our Third Thursday lecture series. Presented by museum staff or local authority, these lectures will explore the lesser known and often-overlooked areas of our region’s past.
Every lecture is free, begins at 2 pm and will include an opportunity for questions and discussion.
