  • listSecond Seminole War Battles

    As part of its 2019 research, University of Central Florida students and faculty in the Veterans Legacy Program (VLP) started a project they called VLPedia. This project stemmed from work on the Second Seminole War soldiers buried at St. Augustine National Cemetery. In the course of this study, researchers recognized that there are few digital sources on that conflict. They decided, in order to better tell the stories of the soldiers buried in St. Augustine, to create digital resources connected to the key battles and people associated with the conflict. The articles included here represent the early fruits of this labor. At this point, VLPedia is still in its developmental stages. Consequently, the entries do not have a standard format. In future years, if the project matures as anticipated, a standard format will be chosen and more entries will be created.

  • listSt. Augustine National Cemetery Interment List

    The St. Augustine National Cemetery Interment List is an expansion of the interment data provided by the National Cemetery Administration (NCA). New names of individuals found through a careful examination of the St. Augustine National Cemetery’s interment cards on Ancestry.com were added to the list. Many of these were spouses, children, and soldiers who died during the Second Seminole War and who were memorialized by the Dade Monument.

    St. Augustine National Cemetery includes almost two hundred years of burials with the first burial recorded for Second Lieutenant Horace Smith on January 8th, 1828 and the last one to date, for Gregory A. Moore on May 28, 2019. The interment list shows that 2,708 individuals have been buried or memorialized at this site.
