The Battle of Fort Pocahontas (Wilson’s Wharf): May 24, 18641
Fort Pocahontas is privately owned and preserved by the grandson and family of President Tyler. They did a very nice job of documenting the battle.
My primary source for a description of the battle was from an article written by Ed Besh.
The maps come from the same web site.
