Fort Cooper Days (March)

In April, 1836, during the Second Seminole War, a battle took place here in these woods. Osceola and some five hundred warriors confronted Major Mark Anthony Cooper and the 380 soldiers under his command who were ordered to "build a fort and hold their ground." Fort Cooper Days is our annual event that provides a look at what life was like during the early 1800's. Come and enjoy modern and period artisans, living history demonstrations, & great food and refreshments. Our battle re-enactment will demonstrate the conditions and types of weapons used during these hostile times and in this hostile environment that still looks as it did over a century later.
