Loxahatchee Battle Reenactment

On Saturday this past week, the 1838 Battles of the Loxahatchee were reenacted at Battlefield Park in Jupiter Farms. The events were the final set piece battles of the Second Seminole War.

The Loxahatchee River connects to the Indian River Lagoon. This is why the river was used by the United States troops stationed in Fort Pierce to approach the area.

Here is a photo gallery of the event, and I would encourage all those interested in Florida History to attend a future re-enactement at the site which is managed by Palm Beach County.
