Marianna Battlefield Tours set for September 27th
The Blue Springs Chapter of the Children of the American Revolution is offering a unique opportunity to experience a guided tour of the site of the Battle of Marianna on Saturday, September 27th.
The tours begin at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and the price for participating is $5.
100% of the money raised goes to the treasure of the organization, which works to help encourage interest in history by school students in Jackson County.
The tours will begin at the historic Russ house (the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce) on West Lafayette Street in Marianna and will last about 90 minutes each with less than one mile of walking. Participants will hear details about the battle that I learned while researching my book, The Battle of Marianna, Florida.
If you would like to reserve a spot on either the 11 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. tour, please feel free to email me by going to www.exploresouthernhistory.com and clicking the "Contact Us" button at the top of the page.
I hope to see many of you there!
