Florida State Parks – Dade Battlefield

Dade Battlefield Historic State Park is known for the battle that started the Second Seminole War. Almost 200 years ago, in 1835, 108 U.S. soldiers were ambushed on what is now the park grounds, leaving only three alive to tell the tale. Every January, a reenactment commemorates the event and teaches visitors about Florida history.
