Battle of Marianna Tours set for September 27th

On Saturday, September 27th, the Blue Springs Chapter of the Children of the American Revolution will be hosting guided tours of the site of the Battle of Marianna.
I rarely do things like this because of my health, but I really enjoy trying to encourage an interest in history among our school students, so I will be guiding two tours.
The tours begin at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and the cost to participate is $5. I am donating my time to help the CAR, so 100% of the money collected will go to the organization.
The tour will give participants a chance to hear stories about the battle that I learned while researching my book, The Battle of Marianna, Florida. We will also explore the scene of some of the heaviest fighting and visit the interior of St. Luke's Episcopal Church.
