Letters, Newspaper Articles,
Books and Reminiscences
of Olustee

Editor's note: These accounts are not the official reports of the battle. Instead, they are letters, remininscences, newspaper accounts and excerpts from books written by the particpants or others. As such, there are a number of inaccuracies—even the official reports contain many inaccuracies—but I have reproduced them exactly as written, including spelling errors. The value of these materials, as opposed to the Official Records, is in the personal recollections of incidents and actions of the writers themselves. Any comments in brackets [example] are made by myself to assist others in placing an incident or unit in prespective when the author does not do so. — Thomas R. Fasulo, Webmaster
