My dad and I went to the Pioneer Florida Museum in Dade City this past Sunday for their Fort Dade Raid re-enactment. What was very cool was seeing the Mounted Sheriff’s Posse of Pasco County there helping out with parking. They are a volunteer organization in my area; many counties around the country also have these organizations. While ours has several horses, I did capture one horse:
Volunteer Sheriff John Bushell on Samson
We didn’t actually stay for the battle re-enactment, but we had fun. We did manage to sit in on the Church Service and watch an actual Court Martial proceeding as it would have been back during the Civil War. We also walked around the different buildings. One of them happened to be the old Lacoochee School House, which was located across the street from my grandma’s house before being relocated to the living museum. I’ll show more about that in another post!
