Another place I've not been to before...Ft. Mose State Park.  Like Kingsley Plantation, it is part of the African-American experience in Florida.  Here's an account from Ft. Mose Historical Society's website:  "Hidden away in the marshes of St. Augustine, Florida is one of the most important sites in American history: the first free community of ex-slaves, founded in 1738 and called Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose or Fort Mose (pronounced Moh-Say)."
