During the first weekend of March each year, the past comes to life as living historians recreate the 1865 Battle of Natural Bridge. This event commemorates the Civil War battle fought by a ragtag group of battle weary Confederates and young cadets from what is now Florida State University, which preserved Tallahassee as the only Confederate state capital east of the Mississippi River never to fall into Union hands.
