The forgotten battle that started a war. This is how Bill Gruber, park manager of The Dade Battlefield Historic State Park, describes Dade's Battle of 1835; a pivotal battle in American history that will be reenacted Jan. 4 and 5 at the Dade Battlefield Historic State Park.
"What I hope people will take away from this reenactment is a real appreciation of Florida history and American history," said Gruber. "Many history buffs never have heard of this battle, let alone the general public."
