Battle of Narcoossee Mill
-wes mayhle-

This event has been hosted by the Jacob Summerlin Camp #1516 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans since 1994.

Florida was instrumental for supplying the Confederate War machine with cattle and other foods more than manpower because of it's sparse population.

Florida's interior was mostly swampland and there were plenty of mills and farmland. Union forces often conducted raids on facilities suspected of supplying the Confederates. This reenactment attempts to portray some of that activity. It is a well-run for the participants and fun to visit as a tourist. The location is next to large East Lake Tohopekaliga and just north of St. Cloud, Florida.

In 1909 St. Cloud was permanantly settled and called a veterans colony. Its streets were named after states that veterans had served from.

The movies presented on this website are usually 5 min or less and were shot with an older digital camera for your enjoyment. They are most often clips from the battle reenactment. To see all my video's go to the Movies page. I commonly use Background music from purchased 97th Regimental String Band CD's or selections downloaded from Incompetech.
The movies are prepared in 3 filetype variations to be viewable in most current internet browsers. If you are unable to view the video's download
Google Chrome or Firefox which are the two most used browsers.
