Built in 1912 and dedicated in 1913, just 49 years after the battle which took place on February 20, 1864 between Union and CSA troops. The battle, while small compared to other battles of the war, was the largest in Florida. After their defeat at Olustee, the Union forces remained in Jacksonville until the end of the war, not venturing out in a significant force again. The Union had casualties of 1,861 and the Confederacy had casualties of 946. The battle is re-enacted every February.
