Smith Gravesite in Dixie County

Near Horseshoe Beach in Dixie County located by Jenna Wildlife Management Area is a lone Confederate Soldier gravesite. Henry M. Smith is buried here and he lived from 1840-1892. There is a dirt road that leads you back to the cemetery where there is a large clearing where he is buried. It is Surrounded by woods, such a peaceful and scenic place… 

So far this is the history I have been able to find about him. “Henry was a private in Company I of the 3rd Florida Infantry regiment. He enlisted in August 1861 and was discharged in April 1865. He was wounded during the battle at Perryville, Kentucky on October 11, 1862”.

This is just some of the fascinating history that you can see in this area of Florida! There are lots of wilderness areas and forest roads that you can explore around here as well. Check out some of my photos below and my video for a look around.
