Chattahoochee’s planned Scott 200th Commemoration is set for next weekend (Nov. 30-Dec. 2) and is growing by the day!
If you do living history portrayals of any era from Native American to Vietnam, we want you to be a part of it. The main event focuses on the Scott Massacre of 1817 (also called the “Attack on Scott’s Command”), a battle of the First Seminole War of 1817-1818. If you would like to participate, we can always use more U.S. soldiers, militia, civilians, Creek, Seminole, Choctaw and Black Seminole reenactors. Clothing and flintlock weaponry of the era 1790-1830 is appropriate.
We also need reenactors who portray ALL ERAS of history for our special “Walk Through History” camp. Whether you do Spanish, British, Native American, American colonial, early settlers, Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam or something else, we would love for you to be a part of it! This camp will allow our visitors to learn about all eras of Florida history.
