Dade Battlefield Historic State Park [FL]

The battle that started the Second Seminole War is commemorated in January each year under the oaks of Dade Battlefield. On December 28, 1835, Seminole Indian warriors ambushed 108 soldiers at this site—only three soldiers survived. The park protects not only a historic battlefield, but also the natural communities as they existed when the soldiers and Seminoles battled over 180 years ago. The visitor center has information and displays about the battle and visitors can watch a twelve-minute video history, "This Land, These Men."

The park offers a short film, exhibits, tours, educational programs, and occasional recreational and educational events (including living history events).
