Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Date: Friday, Saturday & Sunday, February 13, 14 & 15, 2015. 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Description:

Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park, Florida’s first state park, will commemorate the 151st anniversary of the Civil War and host the 39th Annual Reenactment of the Battle of Olustee on February 13, 14 & 15, 2015. Throughout the weekend, more than 2,000 demonstrators will present living history impressions of military and civilian life at the time of Florida’s largest Civil War battle.

The Battle of Olustee was fought on February 20, 1864. Full-scale artillery, mounted cavalry and three African American regiments, took part in the battle that ended with 2,807 casualties and a Confederate victory. The 54th Massachusetts was among the African American troops that fought at Olustee.

The living history weekend features a Civil War-era battle reenactment on Saturday at 3:30 p.m., as well as the reenactment of the Battle of Olustee on Sunday at 1:30 p.m.  Period music concerts and crafts, lectures, battlefield surgical practices and the lives of both white and black civilians during the war will be portrayed by re-enactors. Military camps and drills by infantry and artillery are scheduled throughout the weekend. There will be color ceremonies, cavalry, authentic camps, exhibits, food and much more!

On Friday, February 13, educational programs are planned for students. School groups may call (386) 397-7009 to register for the event. Food concessions will be available. Pets are not allowed at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park during the reenactment.

The Olustee Battle Civil War Reenactment is sponsored by the Florida Park Service, U.S.D.A. Forest Service, Olustee Battlefield Citizen Support Organization and The Blue Grey Army of Florida, Inc.
