Seminole War history presentation planned Saturday near Jupiter

mile

The Loxahatchee Battlefield Preservationists present History in the Park, Saturday, March 19th at 10 a.m., Riverbend/Battlefield Park, 9060 Indiantown Road.

The presentation is free and donations are accepted.

The presentation features author/historian Richard J. Procyk in a living history presentation in costume as General Thomas S. Jesup: “Jesup: the maligned General”-Osceola captured under a white flag of truce.”

Procyk plans to discuss that General Jesup was in sympathy with the Seminoles plight in Florida.

Jessup  was of the few who was against Indian removal and was finally recalled from active duty when he suggested in writing that the Seminoles be allowed to remain in Florida.

A battlefield tour will follow the presentation. For information, call 561- 741-1359.
