August 2015

This month we want to return to Chicago and the “WHERE” of the Koreshans. Chicago is important in that this is where the Unity made its real start — where it all began, even if it faltered at times.

Lyn Millner, Journalism Professor at Florida Gulf Coast University is publishing a new and comprehensive book about the Koreshans, called The Allure of Immortality, An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet. She was kind enough to supply us with an interactive map showing many of the locations (some are no longer there) where the Koreshans lived and worked.

Simply click on the photo of Cyrus, (below) and it will load the maps. Enjoy!
