For the first time, the living history series will focus on the founding of the site for one hundred freed blacks by Governor de Montiano in 1738. This momentous occasion will be presented through a reenactment of the signing and reading of the proclamation establishing El Pueblo de Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose. Visitors can connect and learn by experiencing the military and civilian customs at the site through cooking and firing demonstrations. Dr. Michael J. Francis of the University of South Florida at Saint Petersburg will give a presentation at 2 p.m. on the significance of the founding of Mose in the wider dispute between Grea
Britain and Spain over the "debatable lands" to the north of the Saint Mary's river.
