The FCPHS is an all volunteer, Not-For-Profit
organization dedicated to marking and preserving Florida's Historic
War Between The States Sites.
Many people have heard of Gettysburg,
Atlanta, Nashville, and Chickamauga, but have you heard of Olustee,
Braddock’s Farm, Enterprise, or New Smyrna? Many haven't because these
Florida War Between The States battle fields have been largely ignored
for one reason or another. In many cases it is out of simple ignorance.
Because the battles in Florida involved fewer numbers of soldiers, some
historians thought them less important, and thus didn't write about
them as often as the larger battles. Do you think the soldiers involved
thought them less important? We think not; after all, they sacrificed
just as much as a soldier at Gettysburg. Northern or Southern they gave
their all for their cause. When called upon they took up arms to fight
for their Country or State. They let the politicians do the debating
and they answered the call. We at the FLORIDA CONFEDERATION feel that
they should be ignored no longer.
The FLORIDA CONFEDERATION
FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC SITES, INC. (FLORIDA CONFEDERATION)
was established as a not-for-profit organization to locate, mark, preserve,
and protect the sites in Florida where American blood was so gallantly
shed. Projects could be as simple as providing information on battle
sites or other significant locations. Or our function could be so great
as purchasing land, and building and staffing museums. Our projects
will be limited only by funds and volunteer efforts.
