   Battle of Olustee Confederate Monument

   Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park was built to preserve the site of the state’s largest Civil War battle. A small interpretive center, a one-mile interpretive trail, and monuments to the Union and Confederate armies are open to the public free of charge. The interpretive center contains historical information and artifacts related to the Battle of Olustee.

     A reenactment featuring full-scale artillery, military drills, and living history demonstrations by more than 2,300 reenactors is held every February to commemorate the battle. A smaller exposition of Civil War artifacts and living history demonstrations is held in September.

     Olustee Battlefield is Florida’s first state park. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
