Format: Paperback
As the preface to the book states, the authors intended for it to be an overview of the Civil War in Florida. And in this it succeeds. However, some glaring oversights by the book's editors/proofreaders and some repetitious narration mar an otherwise good book.
The Good:
As stated above, this book aims to be an introduction to the complicated history of the the Civil War in Florida. The authors did an outstanding job of covering the many aspects of war time Florida, from participation by Florida units in far off battles to the struggles of the populace on the home front. They managed to delve deep enough into the events and issues to keep the reader interested while not going so deep as to unbalance the coverage.
Also, the extensive bibliography at the end of the book gives the reader a great source for more detailed information on the many topics covered in this book.
The Bad:
The intent to make the book an overview of the war in Florida also serves as a drawback. The flow of the book is a bit uneven with the some chapters repeating too much of what had been stated in earlier chapters. It seems as if the authors each wrote certain chapters but did not read what the other wrote in an effort adjust their own portions to keep the narrative smooth. This occurs throughout the book in almost every chapter.
Some glaring errors appear in the book, all but one of which are grammatical in nature. Several times throughout the book there are sentances that have extra words or phrases in them; almost like they were taken from a rough draft and never finalized. Also, one date regarding events surrounding the aftermath of Gettysburg is wrong. This does not reflect highly upon the publisher, Arcadia, and does much to question the justification for charging $29.

Format: Paperback
"Florida In The Civil War" by authors Lewis N. Wynne and Robert Taylor (published 2002, 160 pages) is an excellent but brief overview of the history of Florida's participation in the Civil War as a state in the Confederate States of America. The authors attempted to give the overview in both word and images the soldiers, leaders, officials, and citizens of Florida during the four years of the war from 1861 to 1865.
Less than 20 years after joining the United States, Florida became the third state to secede and join the CSA in 1861. The coastline of Florida was prized for import and export of goods and both Richmond and Washington D.C. vied for control of the coastline. Naval blockades by the Union Navy became effective in stopping vital supplies throughout the Confederacy. A few forts remained in Union control throughout the war.
Florida sent many brave men, t(over 15000),though not as much to fight due to the population in both the Army of Northern Virginia, and the Trans-Mississippi theater of the war, and the authors do a good job of giving the history of the Florida Regiments in both theaters of the war. From Shiloh and Chickamauga in the west to Antietam and Gettysburg in the east, the hard fought battles decimated the Florida soldiers and caused much anguish to loved ones back home.
The average citizens of Florida, women, Seminoles, Hispanics, and not to forget slaves, shouldered the tremendous burden and hardship of keeping enough food to eat, keep their property and land, and survive day to day. Both authors give a tribute in the chapters to the Florida home front.
