Did Louisa May Alcott ever live in Florida?

No. She was born in Pennsylvania. She lived most of her life in Massachusetts. She served as a nurse in D. C. during the Civil War. The person who answered that Florida belonged to Spain during her lifetime needed to do their homework. Florida became a US territory in 1821 and a State in 1845. Alcott was born in 1832 and died in 1888, so it was a terrirory over a decade by the time of her birth and became a State before she became an adult. The author who did live in Florida who was Alcott's contempoary was Harriot Beecher Stowe who wrote "Little Tom's Cabin". She bought property near Jackville a year after the end of the Civil War and lived there off and on until she was elderly. Then she returned to Connecticut.

The meaning of In Service by Louisa May Alcott?

I think this story is Louisa May Alcott's way of poking fun of the upper society of her day and its hypocrisy and superficial sophistication. In addition, it's a way to idealize African Americans (Hepsey). Finally, it's a way to illustrate the education of a young woman who has to give up some of her own assumptions and values in order to accommodate a higher level of understanding and negotiating spiritually with the world.
