History of the Battle of Olustee

The Union troops commanded by General Truman A. Seymour left South Carolina with an objective to occupy Jacksonville Florida, their 4th occupation.  Their goals were to disrupt transportation links and deprive the Confederacy of food supplies from central Florida, gain black recruits for the Union army, and help Unionists in east Florida organize a loyal state government.

The Union troops landed in Jacksonville on February 7, 1864.  During the month of January, the Confederate forces were preparing for an offensive. They positioned themselves at Olustee near a lake called Ocean Pond to narrow the passage of the Union troops.

On February 20, 1864 the Union force of 5,500 men and 16 cannon marched westward from Macclenny until they met up with the Confederate troops. Battle casualties amounted to 1,861 Union and 946 Confederate soldiers. In proportion to the number of troops involved, it was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War.
