comment What was the last battle fought mainly by sail-powered ships?
Yeah, I mentioned it in my answer. Note the firepower of these boats. Russian steamers had 12 cannons each (4 according to English wiki), while they had three ships with 120 cannons and three more with 84 cannons.

comment When was the last cavalry charge?
That incident could be the last cavalry charge indeed, but it was a minor episode (7 KIA and 10 WIA), and not a major event. More info in Polish: pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
