Honoring the Fallen of the 2nd Seminole War

The 12th Annual Commemoration of the end of the 2nd Seminole War was held in St. Augustine on Saturday, August 17, 2019. The event featured a parade and a ceremony at the pyramids at the National Cemetery to honor all those who perished in that conflict. The parade began at 10:45 a.m. at St. Francis Barracks, and then proceeded to the National Cemetery. Historical re-enactors in period costume participated in the parade, and members of the public were welcome to join them. In 1842, officers, soldiers, and musicians paraded through the streets of St. Augustine to inter the casualties of the war in the gardens of the St. Francis Barracks. Three coquina pyramids were erected in the cemetery at that time to mark the burial place of more than 1,400 soldiers who died during those wars. The pyramids are known as the Dade Monument after Major Francis L. Dade, who was a leader in the Seminole Wars. This annual heritage event was organized by the West Point Society of North Florida and The Seminole Wars Foundation.
