Dec 19, 2010 - Olustee Battlefield & Cemetery, Olustee Fl.
The battle of Olustee is one of the few Civil War battles where Confederate forces were able to push back and prevent Union forces from occupying the interior of Florida. When Tallahassee was finally occupied by Northern troops in early May, it was the last Confederate capital east of the Mississippi to fall into Union hands. Every year in February there is a re-enactment of the battle. There is a old cemetery nearby that has a memorial to the Union forces.Jump to full entry
