Join True Texas Project – DFW as we view this fascinating new film “The Adventures of the Conch Republic”.
In 1982, the U.S. Border Patrol set up a check point at the entrance of the Florida Keys.
Upset by being portrayed as non-U.S. citizens, and concerned about the potential negative impact to a recently re-energized economy, the citizens of Key West, led by Key West Mayor Dennis Wardlow, went to Federal Court in Miami to seek an injunction against the blockade. It failed. Emerging from the Miami courthouse, Mayor Wardlow announced that at noon the following day, the Florida Keys would secede from the Union. What happens next is a story about leadership, courage, humor in the face of adversity, and how just a few individuals came together to make a big difference.
