Great news. A dedicated Spanish AWI line is sorely lacking. Do you intend to put out uniform information and, perhaps, some orders of battle as well?

He really did not like the British.

The OFM and Winston are elated to hear of this!

I was thinking the same thing.

The Longest Siege of the American Revolution: Pensacola by Wesley S. Odom contains order of battle for the British, French and Spanish forces (to include which Indian tribes back which side), uniform guides and maps showing the movements of the campaign and siege.

The battlefield is now under the city of Pensacola, though the city has maintained some fortifications downtown on Palafox street.

There are some video of the last reenactment (2009) on youtube.

Glad that this part of the American Revolution is finally getting told! Odom's book is very good and I highly recommend having a copy. Also get "Yo Solo" the entire campaign as written by General Galvez himself. There are other books on Galvez himself that have some tidbits. The the loss of the London War Room who had a complete range of Spanish for the period in North America and South America, this is welcome news! In our AWI rules, we have an extended appendix on the Spanish Role in the American Revolution including how the French kept taking credit for the money given to the US by the Spanish (france was broke at this time) and that without having taken Pensacola, Admiral DeGrasse would not have been able to supply his fleet to help in at Yorktown. How different history would have been!!

Fascinating! Living in Florida all these years and I was totally oblivious of this campaign!!!!

I'm actually using the old London War Room range of Spanish for my Pensacola forces.


I have Odom's book and concur it's just wonderful for it's information and its clarity.
