Expanded Edition of "The Battle of Natural Bridge" is now available

The new expanded edition of The Battle of Natural Bridge, Florida: The Confederate Defense of Tallahassee is now available through Amazon.com.

The book is the most in depth account available of the Battle of Natural Bridge, fought on March 6, 1865, along the St. Marks River south of Tallahassee. The engagement prevented Federal troops from capturing Florida's capital city and inflicting widespread damage on the businesses, farms and infrastructure of North Florida and South Georgia.

The expanded edition includes two chapters not available in the original version, as well as much more detailed casualty lists that greatly expand the number of previously known casualties of the fighting. The two new chapters detail 19th century accounts of the battle and explore the strange tale of the mysterious "last casualty" of the Battle of Natural Bridge.

The book also cuts through many of the legends and suppositions about the Battle of Natural Bridge to clarify the truth of the engagement and the land and sea expedition that led to it. Reversing much modern "revisionist history" about the battle, the book relies heavily on primary sources to place the engagement in true perspective.
