The Florida Frontier Guard is an unincorporated association of like-minded reenactors intirested in interpreting the service of United States military personnel in Florida during the Seminole Wars of the 1818-1858 period; specifically those who served as "citizen soldiers" in the various militia and volunteer units which participated in these conflicts.

The 4th U.S. Infantry Company B We portray the 4th Infantry Regiment from 1835-1842.

The 7th U.S. Infantry Living History Association (The Cottonbalers) We portray the Seventh Infantry Regiment from 1810-1850. The Seventh Infantry is America's most decorated Regiment, and one of its oldest. Established on April 12, 1808, the 7th has participated in every American war, commencing with Tippecanoe in 1811. We primarily reenact the War of 1812 but are also present at many 2nd Seminole War events.

The St. Augustine Garrison is a group of re-enactors who portray the life and times of the Spanish soldiers and their families in 1740s Colonial Spanish Saint Augustine.
