Chronology Day by Day

Panorama with Text Small

The Chronology Day by Day has an entry for every single day from 1 January 1861 to 31 August 1865, with summaries for 1860 and from 1 September 1865 to 31 December 1865. The Chronology continues in summary form until the end of 1869.

The Chronology is designed to give a daily status quo and allows the reader to track the progress of particular campaigns, commanders, and organisations in their wider context.

  • 1860-1861 Chronology, Day by Day

  • 1862 Chronology, Day by Day

  • 1863 Chronology, Day by Day

  • 1864 Chronology, Day by Day

  • 1865-1869 Chronology, Day by Day


    Each daily chronology lists the date and day; major incidents occurring on that day; major campaigns and operations ongoing at the time; as well as political and military events and incidents of international, national, state, and territorial importance.

    It reports changes to the status of major commands and their commanders, as well as appointments, promotions, etc of Generals Officers. It lists the current Organisation Tree of major territorial commands down to Sub-District level and field commands down to Corps level, with their current commanders, making it possible to follow the evolution of each side’s High Command structure.

    Generals and Seniority
    There is a list of General Officers for each side in order of seniority on that date which permits the reader to track the progression and evolution of the high command.
