Historian Wesley Odom will share his knowledge with children and chaperones on Friday, February 17th, to promote his book ‘The Longest Siege of the American Revolution: Pensacola’ at the Northwest Florida Heritage Museum. 


Odom will discuss the siege of Pensacola, which lasted nine weeks and resulted in a Spanish victory over the British in 1781. 


“This little-known battle impacted the [American] Revolution in a decisive way,” a flyer says, “and in this lesson, you will hear the surprising end of the siege.”


The event starts at 9:45 AM and is open to children nine years old and older. 


The Northwest Florida Heritage Museum’s address is 115 Westview Avenue, Valparaiso, Fl 32580.
