Conch Republic Navy Schooner Sea Wolf Readying for the Attack.
     Saturday evening at  7:00 PM the Conch Republic Military Forces attacked the U.S. Coast Guard in the remembrance of the Battle for the Conch Republic on April 23, 1982.   The Coast Guard Cutter lead the way out across from Mallory Square and the Conch Republic Army brought it s guns to bare from the land while the Conch Republic Air Force attacked from the skies.  On the Water, the Conch Republic Navy made a classic pass along side of the Cutter.

     The battle was on, and the proceeded to start throwing loaves of bread and water cannons at each other from the seas as the Air Force strafed from above.  This time honored reenactment of the battle for Key West Harbor is steeped in tradition and is still a lot of fun to watch as everything from dinghy's to yachts filled the waters.
The Battle is on.

The Conch Republic is a micro nation declared as a tongue-in-cheek secession of the island of Key West, Florida from the United States on April 23, 1982. It has been maintained as a tourism booster for the city since.
