It is interesting how many times the CSN and/or Army planned to retake Pensacola and Port Royal. Admiral Buchannan was still entertaining schemes to retake Pensacola in early 1864 and allocated men and equipment for the effort.
Sir, apologies for dragging up a post from almost 4 years ago. https://civilwartalk.com/threads/setting-torpedoes-in-charleston-harbor.109897/page-3#post-1220004
Found your statement very interesting. Was the reason for this planning because Pensacola could have been of great use to the Confederacy or rather to deny her usage by the Union?
Thanks for the help,
