3rd Friday on 3rd Street

October 20th at 6 pm – Amelia’s Camellias & Gerbing Gardens

The Amelia Island Museum of History invites you to its next 3rd on 3rd St Presentation on Friday, October 20th at 6 pm. Special guest Dr. Ann Browning-Masters will deliver a presentation based on her book – Floridanos, Menorcans, Cattle-Whip Crackers: Poetry of St. Augustine. A twelfth generation Floridian, and a descendant of Civil War spy Lola Sanchez, Masters can trace her lineage back to the early days of America’s first permanent European settlement. Her book describes common life in St. Augustine through oral traditions from after the Civil War through the Civil Rights Movement. Giving voice to a rich slice of Americana, it illustrates how Floridano, Menorcan, and Cattle-Whip Cracker lives drifted toward overlapping worlds, and became the roots of a heritage that still exists in St. Augustine. This program is free for museum members with a suggested donation of $5 for non-members. Seating is first-come/first-served.
