For my final project, I am creating a HistoryPin tour of sites associated with the American Revolution across Florida. Finding places with verifiable connections to the American Revolution, not just the British Period in general, has been more of a challenge than I originally thought. So far I have 9 locations across Florida from Cape Canaveral to St. Augustine, and across to Pensacola. I am in the process of researching and finding more places to add to my tour, I am hoping to reaching at least 15 different sites in total. Each pin consists of a photo of the site and a description of its connection to the revolution.
HistoryPin doesn’t seem to like my citations for some of my pins and keeps deleting them from my description, such as the Castillo de San Marcos pin. If someone knows how to fix this, I would be extremely grateful for any advice.
In order to publicize my tour, I plan on reaching out to the various institutions featured on the tour, in the hopes that they will spread the word and gain an audience for my tour, especially since not many average tourists may be familliar with HistoryPin. I am also hoping that these institutions could provide more insight about areas associated with the American Revolution that are not showing up in my research. I also plan on creating a brochure about my HistoryPin tour, that could be passed out at the institutions featured on my tour.
