Fought on September 27, 1864, in the streets of the Northwest Florida city, the battle was brief, fierce and bloody. It was the deadliest day of the war for the 2nd Maine Cavalry and 20% of Marianna's entire male population was either killed, wounded, captured or went away voluntarily with the Federal troops following the battle.
