Colbert's Raid

American One of the Last Engagements of the Revolutionary War 1783

Early in the morning of April 17, 1783, British partisans commanded by James Colbert attacked the settlement at Arkansas Post, and laid siege to the Spanish fort. Ultimately a Spanish victory, Colbertís Raid is significant as one of the last engagements of the Revolutionary War, and as a battle far removed from the American colonies between European powers.
