New mini-documentary on Battle of Natural Bridge is now online

Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park
My new mini-documentary on the Battle of Natural Bridge is now online.

It is just over 10 minutes long and explores the history of the 1865 battle for Tallahassee that was the last significant Confederate victory of the War Between the States (or Civil War).

You can view it for free at www.exploresouthernhistory.com/nbindex.

Ten minutes long, the video is titled "The Battle of Natural Bridge: Last Significant Confederate Victory of the Civil War." It explores the history of the Natural Bridge Expedition from its departure from Key West to the devastating defeat suffered by Union forces south of Tallahassee on March 6, 1865.

Fought along the banks of the St. Marks River, the battle saved Tallahassee's status as the only Confederate capital east of the Mississippi River not taken by Union forces and preserved the infrastructure of a vast area of North Florida and South Georgia.
