Digital Discussion: General Winfield Scott Hancock, Almira Hancock, and the early citizens of Fort Myers

General Winfield Scott Hancock was stationed in Fort Myers during the Third Seminole War roughly 30 years prior to Edison’s arrival in 1885. General Scott lived with his family at the fort, where his wife Almira gave birth to their second child. In this informative discussion, Site Program Manager, Holly Shaffer, will discuss the time they spent in Southwest Florida, highlighting details from Almira Hancock’s book, “Reminiscences of Winfield Scott Hancock.” A timeline of Hancock’s life will be covered, including his contributions to the Civil War and time spent as a presidential candidate.

This is a free digital discussion. Donations are appreciated.
