SEVEN HONORABLE FLORIDIANS
“The timid are silent,” wrote a January, 1861 observer at Tallahassee. “The town is full of bewildered and excited people. The Convention is formed of the most ultra-element who have NOT come to investigate, reason, or determine, but with a fixed purpose to vote Florida out of the Union.” Another told of Secession opponents fearful of “incurring suspicion,” but such comment was not completely accurate. SEVEN HONORABLE FLORIDIANS is the true story of courageous delegates who stood before a boisterous crowd of citizens demanding Secession, and still found the courageous and strength within themselves to commit to that for which they believed, and vote NO!

VOLUME 1: FLORIDA'S INDIAN RIVER DUCHESS
Contrary to long-standing beliefs, the Duchess was NOT of the Anheuser family!
"FLORIDA has a live
duke and a still liver duchess," reported a Washington, DC paper in 1882,
writing of the two newcomers to Florida. While is has been said the 'Duchess'
was the daughter of Anheuser-Busch beer company founder Eberhard Anheuser, this
is simply NOT true. A true story, Florida's Indian River Duchess is not merely
a story of her life, it is the history as well of the State's most historic
grove. The enigmatic Duchess of Castelluccia, and three men involved in her
fascinating life, contributed to the preservation of an important part of
Florida's 19th Century history.
