Anne Norton Sculpture Gardens-West Palm Beach FL

This garden was planned, designed and constructed over 
15 years by the sculptress Ann Norton (1905-1982) 
and botanist Sir Peters Smithers. Norton made her sculptures 
on-site where her home and workshop are still located. 
As you walk among rare palms and tropical plants, 
you will come upon one of her “quite large” sculptures. 
The private garden now open to the public was her retreat 
in the expanding city of Palm Beach, Florida.

Second Seminole War 1835-1842

When the US army arrived in 1835 prepared to move the 
Seminole people to Oklahoma for re-settling, approximately 
180 warriors very effectively attacked using guerrilla warfare.
A combination of tribes eventually joined together, including 
many escaped slaves and formed a force of approximately 
3,000 warriors against more than 30,000 US troops. 
It was an expensive and hard-fought war on both sides.
In 1842, the hostilities ended though no peace treaty was signed. 
Most Seminoles were moved to Oklahoma.

The photos from the reenactment at the Loxahatchee 
River Battlefield Park is of one of the last major battles of the war.
