I was returning from St Marks Lighthouse to my Hotel when I noticed the sign for the Battlefield. Being a history buff it was already on my list. 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... More

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 was an important and interesting little battle that saved Tallahassee from Union capture. It is an unstaffed site so I recommend visiting San Marcos de Apalache State Park in St. Marks first for orientation and a visit to the Confederate fort there that played a role in the Natural Bridge operations. Then visit the lighthouse at St. Marks National... More

This park used to be open for visitors to wander around the site of the civil war battle which kept Florida's capital from being captured by the Army of Northern aggression. As a result, Tallahassee was the only southern capital east of the Mississippi that was never occupied by the union army. The site is located six miles east of... More

Yep I'm a Southerner and a native Floridian (5th generation) so I'm a wee bit proud. But though Florida's involvement in the War Between the States was primarily providing men, salt and cattle there were several battles of significance with Natural Bridge being the one that stopped Federal 1865 attempt to take the last capitol east of the Mississippi River....

It's an important historic site, but sadly it's not much more than just a monument. I'm sure the time to go would be during the battle reenactment, but probably not any other time unless you may have had a ancestor involved in the battle. It would be nice to see more there- a trail or small museum or something that... More

I only saw a sign and a granite monument. Unless you had kin who had fought at that site, I'm not sure that that it's worth visiting.

I have been spoiled by the natural bridges of the west that I was expecting to see some sort of visible natural bridge/Arch. Instead this is where the river flows underground for a ways. While it is a bit scenic and seemed like a great fishing spot as there were several people with poles in the water. There is obviously... More
