The Battle of Fort Charlotte (September 1719) was a battle fought between the crew of the Jackdaw, led by the pirate Edward Kenway, and the British defenders of the naval fort of Fort Charlotte, commanded by William Rescorla. The pirates used the newly-upgraded firepower of the Jackdaw to pummel the defenses of the fort, destroying the walls and towers before assaulting the fort with a landing party. Kenway rushed through the melee to kill the three British officers in the fort, and the uncoordinated British soldiers proceeded to surrender. Kenway then entered the war room and killed Rescorla, and Charlotte became a pirate stronghold.
