The Battle of Marianna, Florida was fought on September 27, 1864, at the culmination of the deepest penetration of Confederate Florida by Union forces during the entire Civil War. A small but highly significant battle, it involved some of the fiercest fighting of the war in Florida. An "urban battle" fought house to house and street to street in a time before that term had come into general usage, the battle at Marianna was intense and bloody and was remembered by many veteran participants as one of the most intense short range fights of the war. The Battle of Marianna, Florida follows the entire course of General Alexander Asboth's Northwest Florida raid and also details the fighting that took place at Eucheeanna, Campbellton and Vernon. The raid's impact on the entire panhandle region is carefully detailed.
