About the middle of May some Confederate cavalrymen in Milton were assailed by a force sent to that village by boat, and a brisk fight occurred in the town. Three cavalrymen, three citizens of Milton and two negroes were carried away by the enemy. The general plan of abandoning the coast involved other Florida points in addition to Pensacola.
