“The Civil War in Key West” to be next KWAHS Happy Hour with the Historian event
Raise a toast to Key West history with Key West Art & Historical Society Curator Cori Convertito, Ph.D., on Wednesday, October 9 from 4:30pm to 5:30pm during her popular “Happy Hour with the Historian” program at the BottleCap Lounge, 1128 Simonton Street, Key West. Enjoy a complimentary beer, wine or well drink while Convertito presents on the evening’s topic, “The Civil War in Key West” which will explore the island’s historical significance in the context of the American Civil War.
Though fought in thousands of different places, from Pennsylvania to Texas, from New Mexico to Florida, no blood was shed on or around the island. Still, Key West proved to be essential to the Union and the history that followed the war. How, you might wonder, could a city from a Confederate southern state serve the Union forces? Join the historian and learn the fascinating facts.
Happy Hour with the Historian is limited to 60 attendees; reserve your spot now at kwahs.org/events— $8 for KWAHS members, $10 for non-members.  Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs. For more information, contact Cori Convertito, Ph.D. at 305-295-6616 x112 or cconvertitofarrar@kwahs.org. Your Museums.  Your Community.  It takes an Island.
