The Outrage on Tampa lasted two days. There were no reported casualties. There were not many people involved in this battle. There was also one gunship involved.
The men fighting on both sides were both commanders. The commander for the North is Commander A.J. Drake. For the South you have Commander J.W. Pearsons. They both wanted to have the city of Tampa for themselves.
Both the Union and Confederacy wanted to take control of the city of Tampa Bay. The Union wanted the city so they could have a major city in the state of Florida. The Confederacy wanted to keep the city to themselves. They Knew the Union was not just going to give it to them.
Over the course of two days the North and the South shot multiple times at each other. After the two days of fighting J.W. Pearsons and his army finally were able to get the Union gunboat to surrender. The South would evacuate all of the non-combatant soldiers just in case of another attack. The next attack never did happen.
The battle of Tampa was held in Tampa, Florida. Tampa was a semi- major port in Florida. Tampa was a good place for battle because both the Union and Confederacy could get ships there. The two sides would also get the pleasure of having room with beaches, grassy fields, etc.
On July 1, 1862 the federal gunboat for the Union withdrew from the battle. The battle was then called conclusive but at a later date they gave the Confederates the win. This led to the South getting to keep their land and the Union would have to fight somewhere else. The South won.
