Stopped at the Olustee Battlefield but there is nothing to see. A bunch of old signs that you can't even read as you walk along the trail.

We were just looking for a place to have a picnic and Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park was in the area. No entrance fee (donation box). Not a whole lot to see but in main building you will find the history. Nice short walk around the grounds (battelfield).

Thousands of people dress in period costume and camp in canvas tents for the reenactment weekend. I went to photograph the event. There was almost too much to see. People gathered around campfires. Gear was hung on posts. Dishes and food were organized on tables, just waiting to be shot. Shops sold reproduction clothing and artifacts. The actual reenactment required some patience, but it was quite fascinating to watch. It was interrupted for a bit when some pyrotechnics set brush on fire, but they were prepared for such eventualities and the action soon got underway again.
There are markers and some exhibits for other times of the year, but this park is to quite up to the standard of the national battlefields in VA, MD and PA.

Having been to lots of Civil War sites, this one was pretty disappointing. No one in visitors' ceneyet and little signage about anything to do. Movie was OK, and monument impressive.
