Everyday life in Antebellum Apalachicola as viewed from the Thomas Orman store ledger of 1853-54

Greetings

I am Kevin Bair, owner of history with kev.com, a Ph.D. (2023) historian, and board member of the Apalachicola Area Historical Society.

I am giving a free presentation, on May 21 @ 4 pm at the David C. Raney Carriage House next to the Raney house, on everyday life in Antebellum Apalachicola as viewed from the Thomas Orman store ledger of 1853-54.

The ledger gives great insight into what people were buying along with what sail and steamships were in port. It reveals who bought what, what kind of groceries were sold, what alcohol was bought, and what ships were in port.

Hope you can make it!
Kevin Bair
