Dade Battle reenactment is only two weeks away. Well, less than two now, because it is Sunday night. I am working on a killer Seminole frock that will probably get me banned in most southern states. The material is imported from England, and it is the most gaudy one I have ever created. Looks like a sofa is missing the cushions in a French bordello! I just finished the double-round cape this evening! This one is really scaring me!
December 18th, 1835 was the Battle of Black Point. Ten days before Dade's Battle, and was the first battle of the 2nd Seminole War. More about it tomorrow, on the anniversary!
