Seminole Wars: The Fight for Florida
Florida resembled a battlefield during much of the first half of the 19th century when Seminoles and Americans fought for the same land. The Seminole Wars: The Fight for Florida recounts the three Seminole Wars and the generals and warriors who matched wits and weapons in the jungle-like terrain of Florida's interior. The goal of the exhibit is to create a better understanding of the personal sacrifice, hardship, courage, and foibles demonstrated by leaders during war.

Visitors can fill a military supply wagon, try on army uniforms, feel the 30 lb. weight of a soldier's pack, and hear how soldiers may have viewed their experience.
