Initial Report from Brigadier General Truman Seymour.
Commanding Officer, U.S. Forces, District of Florida.
on the engagement at Olustee, Florida

SANDERSON, February 20, 1864.

General TURNER:

Have met the enemy at Olustee and now falling back. Many wounded. Think I may be compelled to go to Baldwin, but shall go to Barber's immediately. Fribley, killed; Sammon, Hamilton, Myrick, wounded; seven guns lost. A devilish hard rub.
