In keeping with our goal of educating the public as to the importance of the Seminole Wars, the Foundation has produced seven historically significant books and several informational pamphlets. Our members also give talks to schools, civic organizations, and the general public, and participate in re-enactments of Seminole War battles.
The Foundation has secured two major historical sites: Camp Izard and Fort Dade, both on the Withlacoochee River in central Florida. Camp Izard was a major battleground of the Second Seminole War, now formally designated the Camp Izard Battlefield Preserve. Fort Dade was an important outpost during the Second Seminole War, and served as Headquarters for a portion of the war. The Foundation has also provided critical support in the acquisition of the Ft. King site in Ocala.
Preservation of these sites and others related to the Seminole Wars, as well as conservation of green space, will benefit our nation for generations to come. In the future, students, scholars, and the general public may visit these historic places, where history will come alive as they discuss the “issues of the day” concerning the U.S. Government and the Seminole Indians.
This not-for-profit Foundation is operated for charitable, educational, and civic purposes as well as preservation of natural habitats. Join us in remembering the past, that we may understand the present.
