In order to definitely establish their control of Pensacola Bay, the Federal artillery at Fort Pickens, along with support from a couple of U.S. Naval ships, bombarded the Confederate Forts Barrancas and McRee on November 22nd and 23rd. Firing almost 5,000 rounds, the Confederate positions were heavily damaged and these were soon after abandoned. As a result, Fort Pickens, with its control of Pensacola Bay, was one of only four forts in the South never occupied by the Confederacy. $25
