The Battle of Natural Bridge, Florida, was one of the final Confederate victories of the Civil War. Fought on the banks of the St. Marks River, the engagement assured Tallahassee's status as the only Southern capital east of the Mississippi not conquered by Union troops. For its size, the Battle of Natural Bridge was a fierce and complex encounter. Involving Federal attacks by land and sea and determined resistance by Confederate forces that included cadets from what is now Florida State University, the engagement was unique and of significant importance.
