Come learn how you can be a part of our growing Creek War/Seminole War living history effort!

Would you like to be part of our growing community that portrays the people, culture and battles of the Creek War and First Seminole War?

Here’s your chance!

Come join us on Friday, April 27, for the School of the Seminole/Creek Indian! It will begin at 1:30 p.m. CDT/2:30 p.m. EDT and is part of our first annual Two Egg area Seminole War Symposium.

Some of the Southeast’s top living history participants will be on hand to help you learn how to be a part of the Scott 1817 Seminole War Battle at Chattahoochee and other Creek War and First Seminole War events throughout the region. We are looking for men, women and children who would like to portray Native American warriors, Black Seminole fighters or frontier soldiers and their families!

This is a great opportunity for couples and entire families to live history instead of just reading about it or watching other people reenact it!

Give us three hours and we will give you an introduction to the culture, clothing, weapons and lives of the people who lived, fought and died in Northwest Florida, Southwest Georgia and South Alabama during the Creek War of 1813-1814 and the First Seminole War of 1817-1818. Blue Heron’s Creek Hunting Camp will be on hand with demonstrations and exhibits. You can meet living history participants, watch musket and rifle firings and learn how to step back in time and become a part of our project to bring this important era back to life!

The cost is only $10 per person (free for kids 15 and under, law enforcement, active duty military and senior citizens 65+). All proceeds will help fund clothing for new volunteers!

The school and symposium will be held at the Clark Barn, a new entertainment, event & wedding venue in the Two Egg/Dellwood area!   Courtesy of Whitney Clark.

 

After the school, join us as we travel to Chattahoochee Main Street’s Final Friday concert and a free guided candlelight tour of the scene of the 1817 attack on Lt. Richard W. Scott’s command.

Come back on Saturday at 9 a.m. CDT /10 a.m. EDT for a FREE symposium featuring talks by three of Florida’s top historians – Dr. Brian Rucker, Dr. Joe Knetsch and Dale Cox – followed by book signings with all three.
