Assault on Pensacola

Assault on Pensacola

May 8th-9th, 1781

Background: After months of preparation and of weeks of hard campaigning, General Galvez' forces began their siege of Pensacola in March 1781. Over the course of several weeks, Spanish forces landed their initial invasion force as they engaged the British Navy for control of the area. Having forced the British Navy back into the bay and made their way through the bay defenses, Galvez' force awaited his reinforcements from Havana while his land army marched from Mobile.
