SUNDAY, MARCH 25
Richard Lee Cronin, Historian and author of “FIRST ROAD TO ORLANDO” will discuss the origins of the Orlando Reeves story and whether it’s fact or fiction – or a little of both. A popular story of how Orlando got its name says a soldier, Orlando Reeves, was killed at Lake Eola during the Seminole War to prevent him firing a warning shot to his fellow soldiers. Some people claim this is a myth.
