Envision Credit Union has donated $6,000 through its Focus Foundation to support Chattahoochee’s Scott 1817 Seminole War Battle Reenactment.
Officials from the credit union presented the check to representatives of Chattahoochee Main Street, the City of Chattahoochee and the Scott 1817 reenacting group on Friday morning. The funding will cover expenses for the annual reenactment and will also help support Chattahoochee Main Street’s popular Final Friday music events.
The Scott 1817 Seminole War Battle Reenactment will take place this year on November 30 – December 2 and will feature Seminole War battle reenactments, living history encampments, food, exhibits, the reconstructed keelboat Aux Arc, vendors, a mobile museum and more!
The event commemorates the 1817 attack on a boat commanded by Lt. Richard W. Scott of the U.S. Army by Seminole, Miccosukee, Red Stick Creek and Black Seminole warriors. Lt. Scott, 34 U.S. soldiers, 6 women and 4 children were killed aboard the boat while an unknown number of Native Americans were also killed or wounded in the battle. The Scott 1817 Seminole War Battle event tells a balanced story of the Seminole War and the significance of the attack to both sides.
Other sponsors of the event include Chattahoochee Main Street, the City of Chattahoochee, Two Egg TV and the Twin City News.
