General Andrew Jackson: A Live Tribute
1445 Commerce Drive
Local historian and actor James E. Moore will perform “General Andrew Jackson: A Live Tribute” for the December 1st First Tuesday Series class at the Crestview Public Library.
In this dramatic presentation, General Andrew Jackson comes alive as the First Territorial Governor of Florida. Jackson recounts his forceful and disputed invasions of Florida that convinced the crowns of Europe that continued foreign attempts to colonize Florida were no longer feasible, resulting in a treaty transferring Florida to the United States.
For over twenty years, Jim Moore has been volunteering to perform historical presentations for schools, civic clubs, church groups, and fraternal associations. He has been a regular presenter for the Florida Chautauqua Assembly in DeFuniak Springs, the Florida League of Arts, and other associations, representing various historical personalities. Moore has studied the lives of each personality he portrays and appears in the dress appropriate for the occasion.
The program begins at 10:30 a.m. with coffee and cookies served starting at 10 a.m. when the doors open. The library is located at 1445 Commerce Drive behind the Post Office in north Crestview.
Call the library at 850.682.4432 for more information.
