Changing of the Guard Ceremony

Wearing the distinctive blue coats of the 18th century Spanish soldier, members of San Agustin Garrison march into place for the Changing of the Guard.  Step back in time and imagine a typical day in 1740 St. Augustine where soldiers are guarding the little colonial city.  They are dismissed for the night, but not before their replacements arrive and are ready to take over the duty of guarding Government House, the home of the Spanish Governor and the seat of power.
