Prise de Pensacola.
, State Library, MC12-13
The 1810 print shows an explosion of a British magazine during the 1781 siege of Pensacola, killing or wounding many British soldiers. In the foreground, Spanish troops, possibly under the command of Bernardo de Galvez, take advantage of the opportunity to attack and force the surrender of the British garrison. The Siege of Pensacola was part of the American Revolution and tends to be underreported because no American troops were involved.
Due to the varying resolutions of items in the Digital Collection, scans and prints may need to be resampled in order to achieve the desired size and resolution. Please contact the State Archives Photographic collection at 850-245-6718 with questions or concerns.
