We were traveling through Tallahassee on our way to New Orleans recently. My husband is an avid student of the civil war, having grown up near Gettysburg and has always wanted to visit this battlefield. We finally had time to find it. It is a little off the beaten path, but worth the drive. And the drive is through some... 更多
This was the scene of the Battle of Natural Bridge, which stopped Union troops from capturing Florida's capital city of Tallahassee. There are surviving earthworks from the battle, monuments, interpretive signs and such. The views of the St. Marks River are just gorgeous. The battle takes its name from the Natural Bridge of the St. Marks River, which is inside... 更多
We went to the 39th Reenactment of the Battle of Natural Bridge and found it very interesting. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in answering any questions you had. The weather was great and the food provided was excellent.
There isn't a lot to see at the park unless you go to the reenactment on the first weekend in March each year. When you go, you may have to park a good distance away, because a lot of people go to this event. There are a lot of tents set up with information about the Civil War and life... 更多

I found it a bit underwhelming, although it was just before dusk when I arrived and I was a bit rushed the area did not appear to be very well marked. You... 更多
The Battle of Natural Bridge was the only Southern capital not captured during the civil war. The Historic re-enactment of this battle was done extremely well. The people that put this on are all volunteers and they love what they are doing as it shows during the battle.
The reenactment they have here every year has really grown over time. It's a fantastic reenactment of the battle that occurred here during the Civil War in March of 1865. I enjoy it each time I have seen it.
This is a passive park on the St. Marks River. There is a stone monument honoring the soldiers and some... 更多
