1862 April 5th

April 5 Saturday

Lee’s Mill, VA

Burnside’s Expedition to North Carolina

Peninsula Campaign – Siege of Yorktown

Island No 10 Campaign

Shiloh Campaign

Sibley’s Operations in New Mexico

Louisiana. Union Captain David Glasgow Farragut USN made a personal reconnaissance aboard USS Iroquois into the area of Fort Jackson and Fort St Philip on the Mississippi River. The forts opened fire on the ships but Farragut completed his scouting mission unimpeded.

South Carolina. Edisto Island was occupied by Union forces.

Tennessee. After the loss of Fort Henry and Fort Donelson, Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston had withdrawn the majority of his forces into western Tennessee, northern Mississippi, and Alabama. He concentrated as many of his mobile forces as possible into the Army of Mississippi.

Union Major-General Henry Wager Halleck ordered Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant to exploit the success at Fort Donelson with an advance by his Army of West Tennessee southwards up the Tennessee River. Halleck had initially designated Grant’s subordinate Major-General Charles Ferguson Smith to lead the expedition while Grant remained to command the garrison at Fort Donelson. However, Grant was restored to full command after US President Abraham Lincoln intervened with Halleck, and after Smith was seriously injured in an accident.

Grant’s orders from Halleck were to combine with Major-General Don Carlos Buell’s Army of the Ohio, which was marching overland from Nashville, and then to advance south in a joint offensive to seize the vital Memphis & Charleston Railroad at Corinth, Mississippi. Grant’s army had now been strengthened to 48,894 men organised in six divisions made up of eighteen brigades. The six divisions were led by Major-General John Alexander McClernand, Major-General Lewis Wallace, Brigadier-General William Hervey Lamm Wallace, Brigadier-General Stephen Augustus Hurlbut, Brigadier-General William Tecumseh Sherman, and Brigadier-General Benjamin Mayberry Prentiss. W H L Wallace commanded the division of Brigadier-General Charles Ferguson Smith after Smithwas incapacitated. Prentiss, Sherman, and Hurlbut had largely untested troops, whereas McClernand, L Wallace, and W H L Wallace had troops with experience of battle at Fort Donelson. Sherman was the only divisional commander with Regular Army experience and Grant delegated local command to him at Pittsburg Landing while he remained at his headquarters at Savannah, although he commuted daily by steamboat.

Five of Grant’s divisions were encamped on the western side of the Tennessee River near Pittsburg Landing. The encampments were spread out in bivouac style without digging entrenchments or laying out other defences. Several camps were clustered around the small log church named Shiloh. Lew Wallace’s division was five miles downstream (north) of the main body at Crump’s Landing, to prevent the placement of Confederate river batteries behind the army and in reach of the railroad line at Bethel Station. Grant waited at Pittsburg Landing for Buell and trained his many raw troops, unaware that the Confederates were preparing an imminent attack.

Buell’s army of 17,918 men had four divisions led by Brigadier-General Alexander McDowell McCook, Brigadier-General William Nelson, Brigadier-General Thomas Leonidas Crittenden, and Brigadier-General Thomas John Wood. Buell reached Savannah during the night of 5 April with the first of his divisions but the remainder were spread along twenty miles of muddy road towards Nashville.

Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston now had 40,335 men at Corinth, Mississippi, but very few of them had battle experience. The most experienced men had been captured at Fort Donelson. He originally planned to attack Grant on 5 April but delays in the approach march forced him to postpone the attack until the following day. Union patrols clashed with Confederate troops early in the morning but this was not taken as an indication of an impending attack.

The disastrously confused march from Corinth had disorganised the Confederate army and by noon the attack plan for dawn was far past implementation. More troops continued to arrive and moved into their position in line but at 4.30 pm, Johnston held a conference with his second-in-command General Pierre Gustave Beauregard, and his two senior corps commanders, Major-General Braxton Bragg and Major-General Leonidas Polk. Beauregard believed that all hope of a surprise was lost because ten cavalrymen had been captured and the army as a whole had been undisciplined in controlling its noise of movement.

Beauregard favoured the abandonment of the compromised attack. He also suggested that Buell must surely have arrived by now to reinforce Grant. Polk affirmed his intention to persist with the attack. Bragg sided with Polk and when Brigadier-General John Cabell Breckinridge (newly elevated to command Corps Reserve) arrived later, Bragg insisted that an ignominious retreat after such a fiasco would demoralise the army. Major-General William Joseph Hardee was not present at the Council of War but his Corps was the only one in position to attack. It was assumed he would agree with continuing the advance. Johnston decided to postpone the attack until daybreak the following day. The army continued to move into position and the troops camped overnight in line of battle or beside the roadside.

Texas. A launch from USS Montgomery, Lieutenant Charles Hunter, captured and destroyed the schooner Columbia, loaded with cotton near San Luis Pass.

Virginia. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee formulated a strategic plan for the defence of Richmond against the Union army which was disembarking on the Yorktown Peninsula. The departure of large numbers of Union transports from Alexandria had suggested that a Union offensive might be made either against Norfolk or up the Yorktown Peninsula towards Richmond. The Union advance from Fortress Monroe now confirmed the latter course and Lee sent for more reinforcements to be sent to strengthen Major-General John Bankhead Magruder.

Virginia. After reconsidering demands for reinforcements on the Yorktown line, US President Abraham Lincoln relented and released Brigadier-General William Buel Franklin’s division of I Corps to be sent from the Rappahannock line by sea to Fortress Monroe. The remainder of Major-General Irvin McDowell’s I Corps would be directed to advance through Fredericksburg and across the Rappahannock to threaten Richmond from the north, thereby influencing the Confederate army to retreat from Yorktown to protect its rear and the capital against this advance. This approximated McClellan’s original intention to protect Washington not with a static garrison but by advancing on a line that interposed McDowell’s men between the Confederates and the capital. At this point the forces available to Union Major-General George Brinton McClellan on the peninsula were:

Lee’s Mill, Virginia, also known as Warwick Road. Advance elements of Union Major-General George Brinton McClellan’s Army of the Potomac marched from Fortress Monroe to reconnoitre the road towards Yorktown. They encountered Confederate Major-General John Bankhead Magruder’s Confederate Army of the Peninsula at Yorktown fortified behind the Warwick River. The Confederates had a force of fewer than 17,000 men to occupy an eight-mile front. The Union expedition already had 60,000 men available in Major-General Samuel Peter Heintzelman’s III Corps and Major-General Erasmus Darwin Keyes’s IV Corps. Major-General Edwin Vose Sumner’s II Corps was disembarking and moving forward to reinforce them. The Union IV Corps first encountered the right flank of Magruder’s Warwick line at Lee’s Mill, where earthwork defences were manned by the division of Major-General Lafayette McLaws. Magruder’s ostentatious movement of troops back and forth convinced the Union troops that the works were more strongly held than the reality. The 7th Maine Infantry deployed skirmishers across the Warwick Road and halted about 1,000 yards from the fortifications. They were soon joined by the full brigade of Brigadier-General John Wynn Davidson and some artillery. An artillery duel raged for several hours but there was no infantry fighting. Keyes ordered a further reconnaissance and awaited the arrival of additional units.
