This book describes the unusual circumstances that Floridians experienced during the Civil War: guerilla warfare in the salt marshes, blockades by the Union navy, cavalry sent to drive cattle northward to feed the troops, and Federal gunboats tempting slaves to freedom. The author explains both the Confederate and Union activities during the war. Using first-hand accounts, letters and journals, the author describes the battles and other events from the day Florida declared independence to the war's end.
