o12 YANKS STOPPED IN FIERCE FIGHT AT WOODVILLE By HAMPTON DUNN WOODVILLE --Florida's state Capitol was the only seat of State government east of the Mississippi River which wasn't captured by the Federals during the Civil War. But it certainly was thre atened in the waning days of that con flict. On March 6, 1865, a brave band of college cadets joined a mot ley militia of old men and wounded vets to save the capital city from capture here at the Battle of Natural Bridge. Today, Florida State University (FSU) R. O. T. C. cadets proudly dis play the Confederal Battle Streamer, an honor won that day when the young cadets from West Florida Seminary, predecessor of FSU, bested the Union soldiers at this historic spot. Woodville is a tiny community just off U .S. 319, about 15 miles south of the capital city of Tallahassee. The Northern forces wanted not only to add the Florida Captiol to their collection of subdued states, but they also wanted to capture nearby plantations in north Florida and south Georgia w hich were still producing cotton and agricultural products. A large flotilla of Union men under Gen. John Newton, totaling about 1,000, landed at St. Marks lighthouse, on the coast due south of the capital city. The alarm was sounded in Tallahassee. The c ollege kids and the home guard rallied rapidly to form a courageous fighting unit. They were led by Confederate General Sam Jones. The Federals made their way up as far as this little community, where the St. Marks River disappears underground. They were met and repelled by the determined cadets and militia men.
