Dade Battlefield Historic State Park

Major Francis L. Dade spoke words of encouragement to 107 cold, tired soldiers in a pine forest on the morning of Dec. 28, 1835. Within eight hours, only three soldiers would survive the battle that marked the beginning of the Second Seminole War. The story of this momentous battle in Florida history is told in the visitor center at Dade Battlefield State Historic Site.
