The 41st annual reenactment of the Battle of Natural Bridge takes place Saturday and Sunday, March 3 & 4, 2018. The Battle of Natural Bridge began March 6, 1865, in southern Leon County where the St. Marks River temporarily flows underground then reemerges, thus forming a natural bridge. Over the course of the day, Union troops, including the 2nd and 99th United States Colored Troops (USCT), unsuccessfully attempted to charge over the Natural Bridge.
The 2nd USCT LHA will participate in both Saturday's skirmish and Sunday’s full reenactment in commemoration of this battle. Other activities during the weekend include living history demonstrations interpreting civilian and military life during the 1860’s and historic presentations.
The Unit will also participate in school presentations on Friday, March 2, 2018.
