At the beginning of August 1658, general Gustav Horn leading about 1700 soldiers landed by the mouth of the Volkhov river in the area of present-day Petersburg.The Muscovite commander Alexander Potiomkin had enough time to gather his forces from the area and prepare a defense. The fort’s garrison included: 2 reiter companies, 425 Don Cossacks, 300 Novgorod streltsy, 2 dragoon companies, and 1 company of settled soldats. Horn had no other choice but to attack the Muscovite position. They fought for several hours in a difficult forested area and the Finns had to assault field fortifications that were constructed on a hill. Potiomkin and his men stubbornly stayed at their positions due to their superior numbers. After a vicious and bloody fight Horn was forced to abandon further attacks and withdraw his forces to Noteburg. The fort remained in Muscovite hands.
