This monument is located in the square in front of the Columbia County courthouse in downtown Lake City. It commemorates the Battle of Olustee and the 151 Confederate soldiers killed there. It is inscribed with the names of some of these soldiers; presumably the remainder were buried as unknown. It directs visitors to Oaklawn Cemetery in Lake City, where there is soldier plot containing these Confederate dead, and another monument.
