Rum Runners & Moonshiners of Old Florida
Robert Buccellato, Author
Rumrunners and Moonshiners of Old Florida is an adventurous tale about real people during one of the most compelling moments in the state's history. Our presenter, author Robert Buccellato, will tell us the stories of the times: about crooked sheriffs aiding local shiners, a variety of period cocktail recipes, more than one hundred rare images, stories of the temperance movement and sea battles between rumrunners and the coast guard.  Discover the methods used to make shine and transport smuggled booze—including an insider’s knowledge on the vast network of local bootlegging.  PLUS he will reveal a heretofore unknown secret:  there is now physical evidence that Mobster Al Capone was a frequent visitor in the panhandle. 

Robert Buccellato is the author of Florida Governors Lasting Legacies, Jimmy Carter In Plains The Presidential Hometown, Finding Dan McCarty, and Rum runners and Moonshiners of Old Florida.
Buccellato was the Historian for the Clerk of Courts for Leon County, a position created for him, between 2015-2017. In 2017 he was appointed by Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum to the Canopy Roads Advisory Committee. Robert lives in Tallahassee Florida with his Wife Stephanie and their sons Croston and Noah.
