Rick has created over 50 video clips, special visual and sound effects, music and more to bring his presentation to life. It has been shown over 240 times in venues all over Florida, to rave reviews. Rick will discuss his late father’s body of work and why he decided to write about society’s underdogs. Using video records of his father, you’ll learn how Patrick Smith researched A Land Remembered for over two years before he could write it, and he’ll share his thoughts about the “real” Florida.

Time: 10:00AM
Location: Palm Coast Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Pkwy NE, Palm Coast
Cost: Free

Peggy MacDonald: Florida Woman Pioneers

This talk examines a selection of Florida’s First Ladies from the territorial period to the present day. As a girl, Rachel Donelson and her parents were among the first white settlers of Nashville, Tennessee. In 1821, she moved with her second husband, Andrew Jackson, to territorial Florida. First Lady Martha Starke Peay Perry witnessed the rise of secession at the dawn of the Civil War. Columba Bush’s path to First Lady has been called a Cinderella story. She was also known as the invisible first lady. By contrast, Ann Scott has been one of the most hands-on First Ladies since Rhea Chiles, who is remembered as an equal partner in her husband Lawton Chiles’ political career. This talk delves into the fascinating stories of some of Florida’s most memorable First Ladies and their impact upon the Sunshine State. Peggy Macdonald is a native Floridian and the executive director of the Matheson History Museum in Gainesville. Dr. Macdonald has taught history at Stetson University, Florida Polytechnic University, Indian River State College and the University of Florida. Macdonald is an alumna of the University of Florida (PhD in history, 2010) and Hollins University, a women’s college in Roanoke, Virginia.
