Looking for music for your videos? Try ccmixter!
 
Several months back, when I discovered the unbearable fun that is imovie, I started posting youtube videos of homes for sale,  places to go, and things to do in and around Gainesville, Florida.

The musical tracks available in imovie show up as being owned by Apple, and the imovie … (6 comments)

Life in Haile Plantation
Thomas Evans Haile and his wife Serena Esther Haile brought their 5 children and their 66 slaves  to Alachua County from Camden, South Carolina in 1854 to establish a Sea Island cotton plantation which they named Kanapaha.
