Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of Fort Brooke was a minor engagement fought October 16-18, 1863, near Tampa, Florida, during the American Civil War. Two Union Navy ships, USS Tahoma and USS Adela, bombarded Fort Brooke on October 16, 1863, as a diversion, while a landing party under Acting Master T.R. Harris disembarked at Ballast Point and marched 14 miles to the Hillsborough River to capture several enemy steamers. Harris and his men surprised and burned the blockade runner Scottish Chief and the sloop Kate Dale a few miles up the river near the site of today's Lowry Park Zoo.show more
