Engraving of Oglethorpe's 1740 attack on St. Augustine
"View of the town & castle of St. Augustine," 1740 map depicting Oglethorpe's siege of St. Augustine. Original map by Thomas Silver. Courtesy of Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library - University of Georgia Libraries.

To assess their failures against the Mose militia, the British published an account with the self-explanatory title, "Report of the Committee Appointed to Inquire into the Causes of the Disappointment of Success in the Late Expedition Against St. Augustine." The report concluded that white Spaniards never took the field, and that a numerically inferior corps of blacks and Indians had defeated the British.
