answers on a visit to the Spanish Fuerte San Marcos de Apalache in St. Marks
with historian Dr. Madeleine Carr. Did the betrayal of a Creek prophet lead to
the longest war in American history? Stroll through the familiar fort grounds
and gain a new historical perspective: Who were the Creeks and where did they
live locally? Who were the Creek prophets tied to the Wakulla River? What role
did they play in the ensuing Creek Wars? Learn about Andrew Jackson and his
campaign against the Creeks in his quest for an American empire. Walk
peacefully alongside the picturesque Wakulla River as you learn how this short
river became the site for longstanding historical fallacies.  Includes a delightful
picnic lunch served underneath the ancient oaks and round-trip transportation
from Tallahassee.  Part of the 10th
Annual L3X Program, Tallahassee Senior Foundation
