150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF NATURAL BRIDGE
Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park

Date: Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Description:

The Department of Environmental Protection’s Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic   State Park, in partnership with the Natural Bridge Historical Society, Inc., invites you to the 38th annual reenactment of the Battle of Natural Bridge. The event commemorates the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War battle which took place 12 miles south of Tallahassee. Early on the morning of March 6, 1865, shots rang out in southern Leon County where the St. Marks River temporarily flows underground then reemerges, thus forming a natural bridge; these shots marked the opening skirmish of the Battle of Natural Bridge. Over the course of the day, Union troops, including the 2nd and 99th United States Colored Troops (USCT), attempted to charge over the Natural Bridge. Each charge was repulsed by murderous artillery and small arms fire by the Confederate defenders. By days end, Union forces retreated to the protection of the Federal fleet at St. Marks. Tallahassee became the only Southern Capital east of the Mississippi River not to succumb to military capture by Union Troops during the American Civil War. On Saturday, March 7th, event guests will mingle with civil war reenactors and observe a Confederate-Union skirmish, cavalry demonstrations, artillery shows and medical treatment examples. Sunday, March 8th,  will be the official Opening Ceremonies and Dedication, followed by a full-scale reenactment of the Battle of Natural Bridge at 2:30 p.m. Refreshments, including hamburgers, hotdogs, snacks and soft drinks will be available for purchase both days beginning at 12:00 p.m. Parking is available at the park.

Participation Requirements

Fees: Park entrance fees will be waived for the event. The CSO will accept donations of $3.00 per person for adults and $1.00 for children under the age of six.
