In an earlier post I wrote that Fort Jackson surrendered after Farragut's fleet had bombarded it and then run past it. But the eventual surrender of the fort (and sister Fort St. Philip across the river) did not happen because of Union siege or bombardment, but because a mutiny occurred among the Confederate defenders.
And, this was not the only mutiny that occurred at Fort Jackson during the Civil War
On December 9, 1863, a mutiny occurred with black troops from the Fourth Regiment of Corp d'Afrique.
So, what was it about Fort Jackson that caused mutinies?
