The Siege of Pensacola by the Spanish in 1781 has been generally ignored in most military histories of the American Revolution. In some accounts brief reference is made to it, but by and large, it is part of a forgotten theater of that war. Admittedly it is easy to observe that Continental or Patriot forces were not involved and therefore this campaign cannot properly be considered within the scope of our Revolution. On the other hand, we cannot ignore a campaign that involved approximately 10,000 combatants and the outcome of which gave us a relatively peaceful neighbor on our southern borders.
