Osceola capture site on NPS tour

James D Fiske, Director of the Flagler County Historical Society, reported to Historic City News that, on Saturday, June 23, a Living History tour would be made of the actual site where Seminole Indian leader Osceola was captured during the Second Seminole War while under a flag of truce.

The National Park Service is sponsoring the tour; beginning at World Golf Village, heading to Kingsley Plantation, down to Fort Mose, and finally to the Osceola capture site.

During the weekend, while St Augustine is playing host to the Underground Railroad National Convention, Infantry, Militia and Seminole re-enactors will be camped at the Fountain of Youth Park.
