Battle of Manassas Station, VA (CWSAC Major Battle – Confederate Victory)

Second Bull Run Campaign

Smith’s Invasion of Kentucky

Bahamas. USS Santiago de Cuba, Commander Daniel Bowly Ridgely, captured the blockade-runner Lavinia north of Abaco with a cargo of turpentine.

Alabama. Union Major-General Don Carlos Buell was forced to abandon his slow advance toward Chattanooga. Receiving word of the Confederate movements, he had decided to concentrate his army around Nashville. The news that both Major-General Edmund Kirby Smith and General Braxton Bragg were marching into Kentucky convinced him of the need to interpose his army between the Confederates and the vital cities of Louisville and Cincinnati on the Ohio River. The bridge over the Tennessee River at Bridgeport was burned and his army began to head for Nashville, concentrating first at Decherd, forty miles northeast on the road to Nashville.

Arkansas. Expedition to the Mississippi River, Yazoo River, and Helena ended.

Florida. USS South Carolina, Commander John J Almy, destroyed the abandoned schooner Patriot, which had run aground near Mosquito Inlet.

Kentucky. Incident at Danville.

Kentucky. Confederate Major-General Edmund Kirby Smith’s army passed through London, maintaining strict discipline not to plunder the region to avoid arousing antagonism among the population. A major aim of the movement was to attract Kentuckian volunteers to join the Confederate army.

Minnesota. Union Colonel Henry Hopkins Sibley arrived with 1,400 trained militiamen to raise the siege of Fort Ridgely.

Mississippi. Skirmish near Kossuth.

Missouri. Reconnaissance to Dunklin County, Stoddard County, and Wayne ended.

Van Buren Road, Tennessee. Confederate Colonel Francis Crawford Armstrong led about 3,000 Confederate cavalrymen towards Bolivar on a raid into west Tennessee. They contacted 900 Union cavalry commanded by Colonel Mortimer Leggett, about five miles from Bolivar on the Van Buren Road. Even though he knew that he was outnumbered, Leggett decided to fight. Reinforcements strengthened both sides during a seven-hour battle and Leggett held the ground at the end of the day. The Union lost 5 men killed, 18 wounded and 64 missing. The Confederates had 71 casualties.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Richland Creek near Pulaski.

Tennessee. Incidents at Shellmound and Cumberland Iron Works.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Reynolds’ Station on the Nashville & Decatur Railroad.

Tennessee. Skirmish near Cumberland Gap.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Murfreesboro.

Tennessee. Union troops at Fort McCook at Battle Creek came under attack. They burned the fort and retreated.

Tennessee. Confederate General Braxton Bragg began to cross the Tennessee River at Chattanooga to start his campaign towards Kentucky. The advance was led by Colonel Joseph Wheeler’s cavalry. The two Corps of Major-General William Joseph Hardee and Major-General Leonidas Polk crossed the Tennessee above Chattanooga.

Bragg’s advance coincided with Confederate General Robert Edward Lee’s offensive in Northern Virginia and also with Major-General Sterling Price’s and Major-General Earl Van Dorn’s operations towards Corinth, Mississippi. Major-General Edmund Kirby Smith had already started his advance into central Kentucky from eastern Tennessee. Although not directed by a single commander, this was the largest simultaneous Confederate offensive of the war.

Round Mountain, Tennessee. Confederate cavalry commanded by Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest attacked a Union force at Round Mountain, about two and a half miles from Woodbury. The Confederate attack was repulsed.

Virginia. Skirmishes at New Baltimore, Fauquier, White Sulphur Springs, Centreville, Salem, Sulphur Springs, and Waterford.

Virginia. The Confederate movement towards Manassas forced Union Major-General John Pope into an abrupt retreat from his defensive line along the Rappahannock River. In order to protect the army’s left flank, Pope sent Brigadier-General James Brewerton Ricketts’ brigade and the 1st New Jersey Cavalry under Colonel Percy Wyndham towards Thoroughfare Gap. Ricketts stopped at Gainesville, six miles to the east of the Gap, while Wyndham occupied the Gap.

Pope resolved to mass his army along the Orange & Alexandria Railroad and to attack the isolated Confederate force at Manassas. Intending to overwhelm the Confederates, Pope ordered Brigadier-General Philip Kearny’s division(of III Corps, Potomac) to converge from Warrenton, with two divisions of Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside’s command (IX Corps, Virginia) from Greenwich. Meanwhile, Major-General Irvin McDowell set out at dawn with his III Corps (Virginia) from Warrenton towards Manassas Junction with three divisions.

Virginia. Confederate Major-General James Longstreet’s Wing passed through Salem by noon and by late evening it was approaching Thoroughfare Gap from the west and camped on the outskirts of White Plains. General Robert Edward Lee received despatches from Richmond promising further reinforcements from the defences of Richmond now that the threat from the James River had receded. The cavalry brigade of Brigadier-General Wade Hampton was already on its way, and it was much needed to screen Longstreet’s march. Two divisions under Major-General Lafayette McLaws (with part of Magruder’s former division) and Major-General Daniel Harvey Hill were also preparing to move to join Longstreet, eventually adding ten more brigades of infantry to the army.

Bull Run Bridge, Virginia, also known as Broad Run, Buckland Bridge, Buckland Run, Union Mills or Cub Run Virginia. Just as Confederate Major-General Ambrose Powell Hill’s division arrived at Manassas Junction, where the brigade of Brigadier-General Isaac Ridgeway Trimble was attacked by the 2nd New York Heavy Artillery. The attack was quickly repulsed with Hill’s help.

A Union battery deployed near the Bull Run railroad bridge and opened fire while infantry crossed and formed for an advance towards Manassas Junction. Union Brigadier-General George William Taylor had arrived by train from Alexandria with his brigade. The Union troops showed an excess of zeal to save the railroad bridge and Taylor pressed on towards the Junction since he believed he was opposed only by cavalry raiders. His four New Jersey regiments were opposed by Hill’s entire division. Unaware that he was outnumbered, Taylor came under heavy Confederate fire, especially from artillery.

Confederate Major-General Thomas Jonathan Jackson, aware that the Union detachment was doomed, rode out to demand their surrender but he was fired upon. Hill advanced and routed the Union brigade near Union Mills (Bull Run Bridge). The brigade broke into a rout and Taylor himself was mortally wounded by a shell. Union Colonel Eliakim Parker Scammon’s two regiments arrived and served as a rear-guard to cover the Union retreat.Hill burned Bull Run Bridge to prevent further interruptions and retired to Manassas Junction. The Confederates took at least 200 prisoners and 135 Union men were killed or wounded. The Confederates reported 25 casualties. Estimated total casualties in all engagements around Manassas and Bull Run were about 1,100.

Manassas Station, Virginia. During the night, Confederate Major-General Thomas Jonathan Jackson ordered the divisions of Brigadier-General William Booth Taliaferro and Major-General Ambrose Powell Hill to capture and destroy the massive Union supply depot at Manassas Junction and Manassas Station. They set out before daybreak along the Orange & Alexandria Railroad. At Manassas, they found warehouses filled with Union rations and military stores. Over a hundred full brand-new boxcars filled two spur tracks, each half a mile long, and sutlers’ wagons stretched in long lines. The Confederate troops broke through the cordon of guards which had been extended to prevent them from breaking ranks and delaying the march. They looted and plundered as much as possible before setting fire to the remainder of the supplies. As the troops feasted, Jackson searched for a position which would allow him to threaten the Union flank but also with enough natural strength to enable him to hold out until joined by the rest of the army. The position also needed an escape route if the approach of the rest of the army was blocked. Jackson found a suitable position along Stony Ridge by Sudley Mountain, overlooking Bull Run Creek, offering a defensible position along an unfinished railroad grade. To mystify Union Major-General John Pope still further and to buy time, he decided to converge on Stony Ridge from different directions. After its victory at Bull Run Bridge earlier in the day, Hill’s division was ordered to proceed to Stony Ridge via Centreville. Taliaferro’s division marched directly north from Manassas.

Bristoe Station, Virginia, also known as Kettle Run. Most of Confederate Major-General Richard Stoddert Ewell’s division remained at Bristoe and Broad Run as a protection for the rear of Major-General Thomas Jonathan Jackson’s command. They deployed along Kettle Run and fought a brisk action from about 2.30pm against Major-General Joseph Hooker’s division of III Corps (Potomac) at Kettle Run. Ewell held back the Union forces until Hooker brought up his artillery and began an outflanking move. Soon after 4 pm Ewell received orders from Jackson to retreat to Manassas Junction. They disengaged and escaped under cover of darkness but their withdrawal was interpreted by the Union commanders as a defeat. Hooker was unable to pursue immediately as the bridge across Broad Run had been burned. Ewell’s division marched from Broad Run along the northern bank of Bull Run to join the rest of the g=force at Stony Ridge. Casualties may have numbered 500 in total, fewer than 150 of them Confederates and about 400 Union men.
