This Day in Georgia Civil War History

July 29, 1862

Brief Assault on Fort McAllister

Union ships, which had appeared outside Fort McAllister the previous day, launched an assault on the fort, which lasted for over an hour. They did not find the C.S.S. Nashville (which was their goal), but did conclude that it could not have escaped, and must have gone upriver. After that, the Union ships withdrew.
