  • This film presents a visual history of Florida, using costumed actors to recreate scenes with conquistadors, soldiers, smiths, a weaver and Mark Twain. It also uses LeMoyne drawings and archival photos. One scene is filmed in Wakulla Springs Lodge. Other scenes show a launch at Cape Canaveral followed by a "sun and fun" sequence. The film ends with scenes of family camping and boating as credits roll. Produced by Peter Barton Productions; sponsored by Bicentennial Commission of Florida.
