The Seminoles attacked the relief troops at this spot. It was cold and raining, so the U.S. troops wore heavy coats covering their muskets and ammunition boxes. In the initial rifle volley, half of Dade's men fell, including Dade himself and two other officers. White columns mark the locations where the officers fell.
