The Historic Florida Militia presents a Timeline Saunter on one Saturday afternoon each month through September 2024. The saunters generally occur on the first or second Saturdays, see below for dates.
During the saunter, those who are interested in history and how the European settlers and conquerors lived in St. Augustine, can watch this knowledgeable and appropriately garbed group as they walk through the historic downtown. The saunter begins at the city gates on St. George Street and runs to the Plaza de la Constitución before heading down Aviles Street, the oldest street in the continental U.S.
The participants will pose for photos along their route and answer questions about life in 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries St. Augustine.
The Historic Florida Militia is a 501(c)3 organization composed of the following historic reenactor groups: Men of Menéndez, representing the 16th century Spanish soldados and settlers; Drakes Men, representing the 16th century British privateers; Searle's Buccaneers, representing 17th century British privateers; and the St Augustine Garrison, representing 18th-century Spanish soldados, settlers, and government officials.
When: 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. for one day in most months. See the schedule below.
Where: The saunter begins at the City Gate on St. George and Orange streets, and continues on St. George Street across the Plaza de la Constitución to Aviles Street.
