1862 June 20th

June 20 1862 Friday

Vicksburg, MS

Peninsula Campaign

Naval Assault on Vicksburg

Florida. USS Beauregard, Acting Master David Stearns, seized the British blockade-running schooner Lucy off Deadman’s Point Bay.

Kentucky. Union operations in Owen County and skirmish with Confederate guerrillas at Lusby’s Mill.

Louisiana. Skirmish at Bayou des Allemands.

Louisiana. The relief of Confederate Major-General Lovell in command of Department No 1 allowed for Major-General Earl Van Dorn to assume command of the Department. Van Dorn;s command of the Army of the West passed to his subordinate Major-General John Porter McCown. Lovell was under enquiry for his handling of the defence of New Orleans.

Mississippi. The continuing unauthorised absence of Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard for reasons of ill health resulted in his relief in command of the Western Department. General Braxton Bragg, who was already in command of the Army of Mississippi, was appointed to command of the entire Department from 27 June 1862.

Vicksburg, Mississippi. Union expedition to Vicksburg began. Union Confederate David Glasgow Farragut’s fleet commenced a week-long mortar bombardment of Vicksburg. Brigadier-General Thomas Williams commanded the accompanying infantry brigade.

South Carolina. USS Madgie, Acting Master Frank Meriam, took 3,000 bushels of rice from a vessel at Barrett’s Island near Darien. It also captured the schooner Southern Belle near the city.

South Carolina. USS Keystone State, Commander William Edgar Le Roy, captured the British blockade-running schooner Sarah with a cargo of cotton off Charleston.

South Carolina. Two boats under Acting Master Theodore B Dubois from USS Albatross captured the steam tug Treaty and the schooner Louisa near Georgetown.

Tennessee. Incident at Jack’s Creek.

Virginia. Skirmish at Gill’s Bluff on the James River.

Virginia. Exchange of artillery fire at New Bridge.

Virginia. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee began the restructuring of the high command of the Army of Northern Virginia. He needed “fighting generals” who could be relied upon to execute his plan to save Richmond from the approaching Union army.

The most senior Major-Generals of the army had been gradually eroded by the transfer of Earl Van Dorn to the western theatre and then Gustavus Woodson Smith was relieved of command due to ill health and incapacity. Theophilus Hunter Holmes and Benjamin Huger were the most senior commanders under Lee but he was uncertain of their fighting abilities and he would obtain their transfer in due course. The fact that they were in line of succession to command the army raised the risk, as had been discovered with Smith’s succession of the wounded General Joseph Eggleston Johnston, that an inadequate officer would take command by default of seniorirty if Lee were to fall or fail. James Longstreet was the next most senior officer after Holmes and Huger and Lee was eager to give him higher rank in the army despite his questionable performance at Seven Pines. John Bankhead Magruder had enjoyed independent command on the peninsula for many months before the arrival of the main army. Lee was uncertain of Magruder’s capacity and sought his transfer to the Trans-Mississippi Department. Despite the fact that he would become the commanding general in that region, Magruder declined, preferring to stay with his familiar troops. Lee’s first attempt to sideline Magruder had failed. Thomas Jonathan Jackson’s star was in the ascendant after his brilliant campaign in the Shenandoah Valley and he would soon arrive to join the main army. The reliable Edmund Kirby Smith had been lost already to the western theatre. With Holmes, Huger, Longstreet, Magruder, and Jackson in order of seniority under him. Lee had already formulated the main features of his plan to drive the Union army away from Richmond – the defensive roles were to be played by Holmes, Huger, and Magruder, while the roles demanding aggression and initiative were reserved for Longstreet, Jackson, seconded by Daniel Harvey Hill and Ambrose Powell Hill who had both gained strong reputations.

Virginia. Commander Matthew Fontaine Maury CSN continued operations near Chaffin’s Bluff in the James River. Newly designed electric torpedoes (underwater mines) were planted with the assistance of CSS Teaser, commanded by Lieutenant Hunter Davidson CSN. Experiments in explosive underwater devices and obstructions continued and successful techniques were applied to defend rivers and ports throughout the Confederacy.
