These three pyramids cover vaults containing the individually unidentified remains of 1468 soldiers of the Florida Indian Wars


The Florida Indian Wars began with the murder of an Indian agent at Fort King on December 25, 1835. While enroute from Fort Brooke(Tampa) to Fort King (Ocala) 106 officers and men under command of Major Francis L. Dade, Company B, 4th Regiment of Infantry, were ambushed by hostile Indians on December 29, 1835. All but two men were killed in the attack. The remains of Major Dade and those who perished with him are interred beneath these pyramids.
