The Battle at Narcoossee Mill, www.BattleAtNarcoosseeMill.com, is recognized by spectators and re-enactors alike as one of the most enjoyable and spectator-friendly battle reenactments. When there you will want to purchase some of the famous pulled pork sandwiches that are smoked on site and other great fare. Admission and BBQ proceeds help support the numerous civic and charitable activities of the Jacob Summerlin Camp. Special this year will be the Florida Confederate Memorial Wall. Beautiful in its graphics, The Wall lists several thousand men (soldiers, sailors, physicians, and chaplains) in the State of Florida's armed forces who died from wounds, diseases, illnesses, or accidents during or soon after the "Civil War." These individuals were pursuing the dual, and what they believed to be honorable, causes of maintaining the sovereignties of Florida and the Confederate States of America. They were of diverse races, creeds, and nationalities. For more information see www.TFCMW.org . Parking is FREE, and portions of Osceola County’s premier park will still be open to the public free of charge. However, to view any of the battle-related areas and activities a modest charge of $7 per adult, $5 per child 11-5 years of age is charged. The battle commences at 2:00 both Saturday and Sunday, but come any time after 10:00am to see and enjoy all this annual event has to offer. Through the generous support of Osceola County, the nonprofit Jacob Summerlin Camp, SCV #1516 has been bringing this great annual event to Chisholm Park for most of its 24 years, as well as the Friday Education Day events for school children. The Ralph V. Chisholm Park is on the eastern shores of East Lake Tohopekaliga at 4700 Chisholm Park Trail 34771, just off Narcoossee Road (SR-15) between US-192 and SR-417.
