BATTLE OF POCOTALIGO

The Battle of Pocotaligo South Carolina was an engagement of the American Civil War on October the 22nd, 1862. General Brannan, who had been assigned to destroy the railway connection between Charleston and Savannah, commanding 4448 Federal troops, encountered some 5000 Confederates under Walker. A brisk fight followed. Brannan's supply of cartridges gave out, and he was getting decidedly the worst of the fight. He therefore retreated precipitately.

On January the 14th, 1865, just previous to Sherman's march from Savannah through the Carolinas, Howard was ordered to seize Pocotaligo and establish there a depot of supplies for the Federal army. The seizure was effected after a sharp engagement with 5000 Confederates.
