Patriot’s Night Watch at Hewitt’s Mill
June 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$12
With the signing of the Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776, nearly 17,000 loyalists fled to St. Augustine, the British capital of the East Florida Colony. With effigies of John Adams and John Handcock hung and burned in the town square, John Hewitt’s water-driven sawmill on Pellicer Creek began cutting 1,500 feet of lumber each day to meet St. Augustine’s housing crisis. The Revolutionary War had come to Florida and the story just had just begun.
Join us for a Patriot and British reenactor Lantern-Light Historical Tour of Flagler County’s only colonial archeological site. If you plan on bringing guests, or need specific information, call (386) 446-7630. This is an excellent opportunity for East Florida Rangers to gather and enjoy an evening of fun. You should plan on coming about 6:00 pm.
