Orlando History Part 4: The Ocoee Massacre Tragedy
The Ocoee Massacre has been described as the "single bloodiest day in modern American political history". The History of Orlando Part Four covers the years in Orlando during the early 20th century. Orlando history in this period ran from the best of times to the worst in its history. The Ocoee Massacre was one of the most difficult times in the history of Orange County and Orlando. The Orlando Guy acknowledges the exhaustive research of Jason Byrne for the section on the Ocoee Massacre. Jason's excellent article, "Ocoee On Fire: The 1920 Election Day Massacre" served as a large part of the research used for the script on the subject.
