Florida's Forgotten Heroes

Pay tribute to Florida's forgotten heroes: the names of some adorn highways and landmarks while others broke barriers. Meet Alexander Darnes, who rose from slave to physician; uncover the story of Frank Adamo, hero of the Bataan death march; meet Mary Lou Baker, who kept the legislative home fires burning during World War II, and Marjorie Carr, zoologist and environmental activist. Learn how they helped shape the Florida we live in today.
