Georgia. Incident at Wilmington Island.

South Carolina. USS Santiago de Cuba, Commander Daniel Bowly Ridgely, captured the schooner Maria off Port Royal.

Tennessee. Union Major-General Henry Wager Halleck completed the reorganisation of his united armies for the advance to Corinth. He restructured them into a Left Wing, Right Wing, Centre, and Reserve. These designations were a practical arrangement for the conduct of the campaign but the constituent forces retained their identities as parts of the Army of the Mississippi, the Army of the Ohio, and the Army of West Tennessee.

The Right Wing of five divisions was led by Major-General George Henry Thomas (Army of West Tennessee) and comprised 1st Division (Ohio), 2nd Division (Tennessee), 4th Division (Tennessee), 5th Division (Tennessee), and 6th Division (Tennessee). These divisions were led respectively by Brigadier-General Thomas West Sherman succeeding Thomas, Brigadier-General Thomas Alfred Davies (later succeeded by Brigadier-General Edward Otho Cresap Ord), Brigadier-General Stephen Augustus Hurlbut, Brigadier-General William Tecumseh Sherman, and Brigadier-General Thomas Jefferson McKean (replacing T W Sherman)

The Centre of four divisions was commanded by Major-General Don Carlos Buell (Army of the Ohio) and comprised 2nd Division (Ohio), 4th Division (Ohio), 5th Division (Ohio), and 6th Division (Ohio). These divisions were led respectively by Brigadier-General Alexander McDowell McCook, Brigadier-General William Nelson, Brigadier-General Thomas Leonidas Crittenden, and Brigadier-General Thomas John Wood.

The Left Wing of four divisions was led by Major-General John Pope (Army of the Mississippi) and comprised Cavalry Division (Mississippi), 1st Division (Mississippi), 3rd Division (Mississippi) and 4th Division (Mississippi). The cavalry was led by Brigadier-General Gordon Granger, and the three infantry divisions were commanded by by Brigadier-General Eleazar Arthur Paine, Brigadier-General Schuyler Hamilton (later succeeded by Brigadier-General Joseph Bennett Plummer), and Brigadier-General Jefferson Columbus Davis.

The Reserve of two divisions was commanded by Major-General John Alexander McClernand and comprised 1st Division (Tennessee) and 3rd Division (Tennessee). These divisions were his own (commanded successively by Brigadier-General John Alexander Logan, Brigadier-General Henry Moses Judah, and Brigadier-General Thomas Alfred Davies) and that of Major-General Lewis Wallace.

The 7th Division (Ohio) of Brigadier-General George Washington Morgan was detached for operations at Cumberland Gap. The 3rd Division (Ohio) of Brigadier-General Ormsby McKnight Mitchel was detached at Chattanooga. The 2nd Division (Mississippi) of Brigadier-General David Sloan Stanley was defending the gains on the Mississippi River.

On 29 May 1862, after Stanley’s division rejoined, the Army of the Mississippi was further reorganised: 1st Division (Mississippi) and 2nd Division (Mississippi) were delegated to the recently-arrived Major-General William Starke Rosecrans as the Right Wing of the Army of the Mississippi while the 3rd Division (Mississippi) and 4th Division (Mississippi) were delegated to Brigadier-General Schuyler Hamilton as the Left Wing of the Army of the Mississippi. Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant continued to serve as second-in-command to Halleck.

South Carolina. Incident at Whitmarsh Island.

Virginia. Confederate Major-General Thomas Jonathan Jackson had occupied positions at Swift Run Gap with his 6,000 men after the defeat and pursuit by Union troops under Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks from Kernstown. Jackson was now given authority over Major-General Richard Stoddert Ewell’s division with a further 8,000 men at Gordonsville and also of 3,000 more men in the Army of the Northwest commanded by Brigadier-General Edward Johnson. Johnson was at West View, seven miles west of Staunton, having been forced back by the advance of Major-General John Charles Frémont’s troops through West Virginia to McDowell. Allowing Frémont’s troops (actually only the division of Brigadier-General Robert Huston Milroy) to combine with Banks would threaten disastrous numerical inferiority on Jackson so he decided to attack his divided opponents in detail.

With orders to draw Union forces away from the main action at Richmond, Jackson decided to strike first at Frémont. Ewell was moved to Elk Run Valley from Gordonsville, aiming to replace Jackson in the flanking position at Swift Run Gap and to prevent Banks from moving to Staunton. To strengthen this deterrent, Colonel Turner Ashby’s cavalry made continual feints against Banks’ force which had halted at Harrisonburg.

During the afternoon, Jackson departed on a long march with his own division, followed later by Ashby, ostensibly to join General Joseph Eggleston Johnson for the defence of Richmond. Keeping his plans secret, even from his senior officers, Jackson took a circuitous route to conceal his objective. He headed up the Shenandoah Valley through Port Republic and then through Brown Gap to Mechum’s River Station. He then moved his force by railroad to Staunton. He eventually made contact with Johnson on 7 May.

Banks was taken in by the deception and reported that Jackson had left the Shenandoah Valley and was on his way to Richmond. He even suggested that his command might now be moved safely to reinforce the forces at Fredericksburg or even to the Peninsula.
