Free talk followed by a book signing by James M. Denham, Professor of History and Director of the Lawton M. Chiles Jr. Center for Florida History at Florida Southern College in Lakeland.
His book,“Florida Founder William P. DuVal, Frontier Bon Vivant,” provides the first full-length biography of the first civil governor — appointed by President James Monroe in 1822— of the Territory of Florida. DuVal founded Tallahassee and presided over the territory’s first twelve territorial legislative sessions.
