Picnic & Some History

I've been hanging out in the area around Bushnell Florida for a few days now and with today's temperature in the mid 70s with lots of sun I decided it would be a good day for a picnic. The Dade Battlefield Historic State Park was just a couple of miles away so I thought I would take a look. Had a nice walk, my little picnic and then stopped in at the visitors center that explained the significant battle that occurred here, starting the Second Seminole War, when Seminole Indian warriors fought US soldiers under the command of Major Francis L. Dade on December 28, 1835 - killing 108 soldiers while only three survived.
