Those who sign on will tour their new barracks, learn about the equipment and food with which King George will supply them, and practice 18 th century close-order drill under with their sergeant. They will also visit a local sutler, who will display the merchandise they can purchase with a soldier’s pay. In addition, regular soldiers of Florida’s British Army will be on hand to demonstrate the daily life of a soldier on this frontier of the Empire, while the ladies of the garrison will discuss what it means for wives and children to “follow the drum.” The event takes place at the Castillo de San Marcos from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. General admission into the park is $10, and admission for youth ages 15 and under is free. 1 S.
