Did you know?

The line-ahead (bow-to-stern) formation for attacking ships was first used by the Portuguese against Muslim opponents off the southwest coast of India in 1502. It’s exact inventor, and the mental process he went through to come up with the idea, has been lost to history. The tactic itself, though, in one variant or another, went on to become the standard fighting technique for all Western navies throughout the next three centuries. See MoreSee Less

Today in Military History
18 July 1863

Confederate troops defeat Union forces in the Second Battle of Fort Wagner. In June 1863, Brig. Gen. Quincy Gillmore became the commanding officer of the Department of the South. After taking command he began preparations for a Union assault on Morris Island, where Fort Wagner was located. By seizing the fort, the Union could divert its attention toward Fort Sumter, whose guns prevented US Naval warships from entering Charleston harbor. On 11 July the first assault began, but was repulsed with heavy Union losses. Determined to gain control of the fort, Gillmore launched a second assault on 18 July. The 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment (an African-American unit) led the attack, and suffered heavy casualties in the fight. Despite failing to capture the fort, the 54th received wide acclaim for their valor in the battle. Sgt. William Harvey Carney was later awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions in the battle. The 54th and the Second Battle of Fort Wagner were later depicted in the Academy-award winning film “Glory.” See MoreSee Less
