Reenactments events are held at Fort King. This year's December 1-2, 2018 conflicted with Colonial Night Watch in St. Augustine. However, East Florida Ranger Joe Noto and his wife Michelle represented our group. Reenactors portray Seminoles and soldiers. The events will include demonstrations of axe throwing, blacksmithing and Seminole sewing and cooking techniques.
Months after Osceola’s raid, U.S. soldiers abandoned the fort and the Seminoles burned it to the ground. Army troops returned in 1837 and rebuilt the fort. Fort King has been rebuilt again to continue providing an important insight to Florida history.
