We also went to Dade Battlefield. Ranger George was dressed up in frontier clothes and shared with us many details of life. He was great at including the kids in the conversations and questions.
Super cool...and loud!
Behind where we were sitting is where the soldiers made a small encampment and surrounded themselves after they had been attacked by ambush of the Indians. It put them at greater risk, and only two survived. It is a great park to visit and there is a re-enactment in early January if you are in the area!
