Costumed reenactors will regale with tales of the Union Troops' invasion of Fernandina, a slave family's escape from a St. Mary's Plantation, a Fernandina businessman and Spanish Consular's involvement leading up to the Spanish American War, the life and time of Uncle Charlie, bartender at the Palace Saloon, and other notable members of the community.
