The fine folks at Groupon and The Tampa Bay History Center, have teamed up to offer you a great deal on admission.

I suggest you use your Groupon to explore Florida’s little-known Civil War history during Blue and Gray in Tampa Bay: The Civil War on Florida’s West Coast, opening January 10, 2011 at the Tampa Bay History Center. The third state to secede from the Union in 1861, confrontations between Confederate and Union troops raged along Florida’s Gulf Coast. 

Learn about stealthy Confederate blockade runners and Florida’s “Cow Cavalry,” plus find out how the War Between the States affected Secessionists, Unionists, slaves and women in the Tampa Bay area. In addition, the History Center will feature the traveling exhibit Florida in the Civil War from the Orange County Regional History Center through April 9, 2011.  Blue and Gray in Tampa Bay is on exhibit through June 2011.
