I'm sorry I did not read your post close enough. What I have here says

From Olustee Website
During the Olustee Campaign the Twenty-eighth Battalion,Georgia served as infantry under the command of Major A. Bonaud. A detachment from the Florida Camp of Instruction, the Florida Conscript Company, was attached to the battalion at Olustee, and there is a slight possibility that part of the Second Florida Battalion was as well.

The battalion had been formed at Savannah in 1863 by uniting a number of independent heavy artillery companies. Olustee was the first major engagement for the unit. Comparatively small in numbers, the unit suffered over 100 casualties: 12 killed, 95 wounded, and two missing. The Florida Conscript Company suffered losses of six killed or died of wounds, and nine wounded. It is unclear if these loses were included in the totals for Bonaud's Battalion.

Two companies of this battalion served with the Army of Northern Virginia, with the rest of the battalion remaining in the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida
