This state park is a neat place to reflect on history. We went for a reenactment, which was our first. It was well attended and you could interact with the actors. It was an enjoyable family day that was different from the usual Florida theme...More

Having been to several Civil War Battlefields, we were somewhat disappointed, we were somewhat disappointed in the visitors center/interpretive center. First of all, it was unstaffed. It would be nice to have someone there to answer questions. The few (maybe five) exhibits all looked worn...More

OK, so the state has not invested much in this site of the largest Civil War Battlefield in Florida. But in conjunction with the US Forest Service there is a nice 1 mile walking trail that interprets the battle. A new visitor center is in...More

I’ve been to a few of the larger battlefields, so I knew I wouldn’t get the experience here as I did in Gettysburg or Antietam but this place was lacking. It was the site of really the only major battle in the State of Florida...More
