The Forgotten History
Fort Mose
African-American Community of Freedom

What is Fort Mose?

More than 300 years ago, Africans escaped from enslavement in the British colony of Carolina. They fled southward toward Spanish St. Augustine. Through courage, persistence and ingenuity, they gained their freedom. Aligning with the Spanish, they formed the first Underground Railroad, the first black militia and the first free black settlement in what is now the United States.
