Join us for the re-enactment of the “1668 Searle’s Raid/Sack of St. Augustine”. This historical re-enactment of the famous bloody pirate raid led by Robert Searle and his crew begins at the Plaza and ends at the Old City Gates.

In 1668, Captain Robert Searle and his privateers sailed from Jamaica to loot the silver ingots (metals that can be shaped into various things) held in the royal coffers (small chests) at St. Augustine. Under the cover of night, they slipped into the harbor and attacked the sleeping town, killing sixty people and pillaging government buildings, churches and homes.
