THIS JUST IN: 1856 Seminole War-era map

Here's another episode of our This Just In series. Michael Slicker has an amazing 1856 map that was created for use during the Seminole Wars in Florida. It is a nice specimen and has a great story with it. This is the first time we have broadcast on the live streaming platform Periscope. We might try it again. After all, the point of live streaming is that the audience is watching. Let us know what you think. Would  you watch a live version of This Just In or our other series, Rare Book Moment?

If you'd like to learn more about this map and book or other items in our store, call us at (727) 822-3278 or send us an email at lighthousebooksABAA@gmail.com. Visit Lighthouse Books, ABAA online.
