A Clash Of Cultures
The skirmish at Bloody Marsh was more than a battle.
It was a clash of cultures - each vying for control of
what is now the southeastern United States.
Soldiers from Hispanic colonies in the New World
fought under the Spanish banner, with the help of
Indians and emancipated blacks from Florida. British
defenders included English and Scottish immigrants
and friendly Southeastern Indians. The British coalition fought effectively, and defeated the invading Spanish army of St. Simon Island.
