In the early morning hours of June 26, 1740, the village of Gracia Real
de Santa Teresa de Mose (mo-SAY), the first, legally sanctioned free black settlement in the continental U.S.,
became the site of the bloodiest battle in Florida’s part in the War of Jenkins’ Ear. That day saw Florida’s
Spanish soldiers, black militia, and native Yamassee auxiliaries locked in a “clash of empires” with invading
English and Scottish troops from Georgia, a battle that culminated in desperate, hand-to-hand fighting as Fort
Mose, St. Augustine’s northern-most defense, burned around them. The decisive Spanish victory at “Bloody
Mose” was one of the factors that ended British Georgia’s invasion of Spanish Florida.
On Saturday, June 22, 2013, Florida Living History, Inc. (FLH – http://floridalivinghistory.org/ ), along with Fort
Mose Historic State Park ( www.floridastateparks.org/fortmose/ ) and the Fort Mose Historical Society (
www.fortmose.org/ ), will host the fourth, annual Battle of Bloody Mose Commemoration. The Battle of Bloody
Mose historical re-enactment will take place from 10AM to 3PM at Fort Mose Historic State Park – 15 Fort
Mose Trail; St. Augustine, Florida; 32084.
