In 1740, the continued existence of St. Augustine was in doubt. British General James Oglethorpe laid siege and was poised to run the Spanish from the city. Citizens – terrified about the possibility of losing their homes – clung to the hope that the Spanish forces would strike a blow from the Castillo that would send the English invaders away. A desperate plan was conceived to attack the British occupiers of Fort Mose. In partnership with the St. Augustine Garrison, on the evening of Friday, December 6th, staff and volunteers in 18th century period clothing will tell the stories of St. Augustine on the brink of its destiny. Visitors will experience the evening before the Fort Mose counterattack, and learn about life in the town during the siege as the cannon fire away at the British on Anastasia Island. During the tours, visitors and local residents will hear the Castillo’s cannons fire multiple times between 6:45pm – 9:00pm.
