Early in the war, in 1702, the English captured and burned Spanish-held St. Augustine, Florida. However, the English were unable to take the main fortress of St. Augustine, resulting in the campaign being condemned by the English as a failure. The Spanish maintained St. Augustine and Pensacola for more than a century after the war, but their mission system in Florida was destroyed. English military aid to the colonists was largely ineffective or deflected in defense of the areas around Charleston, South Carolina, and the New YorkNew England frontier with the Canadian territories.
