Flight to Freedom
Join us at Fort Mose Historic State Park on February 1-3, 2024 for Flight to Freedom; 9:00am-3:00pm each day.
Honoring and remembering all those who risked everything in search of freedom and the opportunity to live their own lives.
For many decades before the founding of Fort Mose, Africans were fleeing enslavement on the British rice and indigo plantations in the coastal regions of South Carolina. They were seeking the opportunity to live as free men, women, and children in Spanish Florida.
Flight to Freedom tells their story of this dangerous and life risking journey. It covers over 300 miles through forests, swamps, marshes and waterways as visitors are taken along the “Freedom Trail” south to Fort Mose.
Tours every 20 minutes — 9:00am-11:00am & 12:00pm-3:00pm
