Historic marker and info about the Battle. Would recommend visiting the St. Mark's National Wildlife Refuge first and foremost. You can stop here on the way down or back from Tallahassee. Probably don't want to make it your main focus.

We were extremely lucky this time to have a "guide" who was an expert in the ongoing exploration of these battlegrounds and a longtime battle reenactment specialist. He brought the imagery of the battle to life...it's amazing what little protection either side had from the...More
