Living History Saturday: Rough Riders Spend a Week in Tampa

May 18 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

$16.95

Step into history with the Rough Riders, the First U.S. Volunteer Cavalry, which spent five days in 1898 in Tampa en route to the Spanish-American War—the only unit to see combat in the US Army during that conflict. Delve into their daily drills and historical preparations at Vila Brothers Park. Engage with The Tampa Rough Riders for a vibrant recount of the regiment’s formation and legacy—a captivating local perspective on Teddy Roosevelt’s presidential journey.

Your journey through time awaits! Explore local history brought to life by in-gallery historians on selected Saturdays. Presentations at 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Their stories offer more than just a museum experience and are included with your admission.
