A foggy morning on the James River. #historyisfun

On this day in 1864, during the Civil War, the Battle of Olustee was fought in Baker County, Florida. Olustee was one of the few Civil War battles fought in the State of Florida and was the climax of a Union invasion of the state with the intention of severing Confederate supply lines. Florida had one of the smallest populations in the Confederacy so it was difficult for it to contribute to the war effort by provided large numbers of troops. However, what they could contribute was food and supplies. They were among the chief producers of food, mainly beef, for the Confederacy. The invasion that resulted in the Battle of Olustee was launched in an effort to severe these lines of food and supply. It began on February 7 and was commanded by General Truman Seymour.

The Union troops under Seymour quickly set about dismantling Confederate rail lines, as well as freeing slaves, many of which would end up serving in the Union’s African-American regiments. A Confederate force under the command of General Joseph Finnegan set out against the Union raiders and caught up with the Union men near the Olustee railroad station. The Confederates proceeded entrench themselves rapidly near Olustee and wait for the Union troops to attack. The fighting started on February 20, and throughout the day, the Union troops attacked repeatedly. Each time they were savagely repulsed by devastating Confederate volleys. Late in the day, the Confederates counter-attacked the weakened Union men and broke the Northern line, sending them fleeing toward Jacksonville, the nearest Union stronghold. Out of 10,500 men engaged, nearly 3,000 were killed, wounded, or captured. The battle ended any thought of Union influence in Florida and sealed Confederate control of the state, and its supply lines, for the rest of the war.

Who wouldn’t want a magic diary that could transport you to any time and place (far away from this rain please!). From the Romans to the first man on the Moon, this book will engage, intrigue and make history accessible. As a former history teacher I not only love this book but love how it makes history and learning fun and awesome.

For those who have never been this monument is huge. I am like 100 feet away and I only have half of it in my camera view. #family #familyadventure #battleofqueenstonheights #historyisfun @cdnwondermom

Happy Presidents' Day to all our Americans.

final Valentine's week shenanigans -- scandalous behavior done in a most fashionable way at the Roaring Twenties Street Jam Speakeasy Party! (don't ask me to tag a location -- we were in some random warehouse in the middle of the hood in DTLA -- couldn't find it again if you paid me to -- somewhere between the Fashion District and Skid Row.) 'Twas a lovely evening of prohibition-era cocktails, live music with Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang, dancing, and a reenactment of the 1929 St. Valentine's Day Massacre. (Only using whipped cream pies instead of tommy guns -- Benjamin nailed the cop in charge, I smacked Al Capone right in the face, and we made a new friend!) #travel #wanderlust #airstream #rvliving #california #losangeles #tincantravels #reallifeRVing #ramonaandben #historyisfun

I ordered this book in December, but it didn't get here until the end of January. I set it aside and forgot all about it until today. Can't wait to try some of the styles. 😍

In honor of Presidents' Day, here's a picture of a house all presidents have resided in. I do feel it important to note that this picture was taken during the #Obama presidency. Anyone who knows me, knows I love history. Over the next few posts I'd like to share other presidential homes I've visited... and maybe some fun facts, too. 🇺🇸#merica #whitehouse #1600pennsylvaniaavenue #historyiscool #historyisfun #historygeek
