March 11 1862 Tuesday
New Bern Campaign
Sibley’s Operations in New Mexico
New Madrid Campaign
USA. US President Abraham Lincoln issued General War Order No 3, suspending Major-General George Brinton McClellan temporarily from his position as General-in-Chief. McClellan retained his command of the Department of the Potomac and Army of the Potomac on the understanding that the change was made to enable him to prioritise his attention in the Virginia theatre. The orders were promulgated on 11 March 1862 and came into practical effect on 17 March 1862.
The long-retired Major-General Ethan Allen Hitchcock, who had been summoned earlier to Washington, DC, was offered command of the Army of the Potomac, or the position of Military Adviser to the President. He declined both appointments, claiming infirmity as his reason. He was assigned instead to chair the War Board, thereby serving effectively as the senior military adviser to the President and the Secretary of War but without the title. McClellan was reassured that this arrangement meant that his position as General-in-Chief was not terminated, only suspended, but McClellan never regained the status of General-in-Chief.
Another fateful change in Virginia for McClellan was the establishment of the Mountain Department to take charge of western Virginia. Combined with the imminent creation of the Department of the Rappahannock to oversee Northern Virginia and the creation of the Department of the Shenandoah, this action reduced McClellan’s authority over the regions south and west of Washington, DC. This curtailed his capacity to control and shift troops around a theatre that he had been commanding in its entirety for over seven months. With his authority now restricted only to the operations of the Army of the Potomac, McClellan felt that his freedom to manoeuvre and direct all forces to a unified object had been severely compromised. From his perspective, it implied a want of trust and betrayal by the Government, and in particular the President. From the perspective of President Lincoln, the changes forced McClellan to focus on the capture of Richmond with the nation’s largest army while others managed peripheral forces and other responsibilities, including the defence of Washington, DC. This separation of command would lead to paralysis, misunderstanding, rivalry, recrimination, and diverging priorities across the Union commands in Virginia; factors which would be decisively exploited by the Confederates. The later creation of the Army of Virginia in the summer of 1862 to coordinate the new peripheral commands was a sensible correction, but it was both untimely and poorly executed.
USA. The Union War Order No 3 also appointed Major-General Henry Wager Halleck to take supreme command in the western theatre. This was done by establishing the Department of the Mississippi (effectively a Military Division in later usage) to bring unified command over the extensive Department of the Missouri, the Department of the Ohio, and the Department of Kansas. The new territorial command of the Department of the Mississippi might normally have been designated a Military Division but as the senior officer of the Army, Major-General George Brinton McClellan, was only commanding the Department of the Potomac, it was felt inappropriate to name the command of the second most senior officer, Major-General Henry Wager Halleck, as commander of a Military Division, which was a higher level of territorial command.
CSA. Following his inexplicable abandonment of Fort Donelson in February 1862, Confederate Brigadier-General John Buchanan Floyd was relieved of his command by President Jefferson Finis Davis, without a court of inquiry. He resumed his commission as Major-General of Virginia Militia but did not resume active field service. Brigadier-General Gideon Johnson Pillow was similarly relieved for his failure to break out from the besieged fort but he was later reinstated.
Florida. A landing party from USS Wabash, Commander Christopher Raymond Perry Rodgers, occupied St Augustine after it was evacuated by the Confederates.
Florida. Two Confederate gunboats under construction at the head of Pensacola Bay were burned by the Confederates to prevent their falling into Union hands in the event of an anticipated move against Pensacola by Union naval forces.
Georgia. Expedition to Elba Island and Savannah River began.
Missouri. Reconnaissance to Douglass County, Laclede County, and Wright County ended.
Missouri. Incident at New Madrid.
North Carolina. Union Brigadier-General Ambrose Everett Burnside’s command embarked at Roanoke Island on transports and sailed to rendezvous with Union gunboats at Hatteras Inlet to begin an expedition against New Bern. New Bern lies on the right (southwest) bank of the Neuse River, about 37 miles above its exit into Pamlico Sound. The river is broad in this vicinity and is deep enough that vessels that can navigate the sound can also ply the river. New Bern was a significant military objective as the Atlantic & North Carolina Railroad connected the coast with the interior through the city. A short distance further up at Goldsborough the line crossed the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad. If New Bern were to fall into Union hands, an important link in the supply chain of the Confederate army in Virginia would be broken. The surrounding land was low and rather flat and marshy. The solid areas of land were mostly covered with open pine forest, although in places it was broken into low hills with deciduous forests, separated by ravines. It is crossed by many creeks that sometimes rise to the status of small rivers. One of these, the Trent River, separates New Bern from the land to its south. Another smaller watercourse is Slocum’s Creek, 16 miles farther down the Neuse was to the landing site for invading Union forces. The railroad ran on a system of raised banks and occasional cuts about a mile inland from the river. It entered the city on a bridge over the Trent River. A county road passed over the same land, also connecting New Bern with Morehead City and Beaufort.
Although more than a month passed after the loss of Roanoke Island, the local Confederate command had received no reinforcements to protect New Bern. Confederate Brigadier-General Lawrence O’Bryan Branch had about 4,000 men, much depleted by sickness, of whom many were poorly-armed militiamen. Branch was forced to shorten his lines, abandoning some of the stronger breastworks and basing his principal defence on Fort Thompson. Fort Thompson had been built by Brigadier-General Daniel Harvey Hill but it extended only from the river to the railroad. The fort held 13 guns, only three of which bore on landward approaches. Hill had also ordered the building of a series of batteries along the river to defend against attack by naval forces. The river was blocked by two barriers. The first, a mile and a half below Fort Thompson, consisted of a double row of piles cut off below the water, capped with iron, and backed by a row of 30 torpedoes each containing about 200 pounds of powder. The second was opposite Fort Thompson and consisted of a row of hulks and chevaux de frise that would force ships to pass under the guns of the fort. The landward defences ended on the right in a brickyard. The land farther to the right was fairly firm and would allow his position to be flanked, so Branch decided to extend the line beyond the railroad and end it in a swamp. This doubled the length of the defensive line but, in his haste to complete the extension and hampered by a shortage of labour, he decided to use a small creek as a natural defence for part of the line. This creek intersected the railroad at a point some 150 yards from the brickyard. The line of breastworks, therefore, had a vulnerable dogleg at its centre.
Tennessee. Skirmish at Paris involving troops from Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant’s Army of West Tennessee.
Tennessee. Having been given overall command and direction of military operations in the western theatre, Union Major-General Henry Wager Halleck devised a new strategic plan. His offensive campaign would advance up the Tennessee River, destroying the railroad hubs at Jackson, Humboldt, and Corinth, and wrecking the key railroad bridge at Big Bear Creek east of Iuka. Halleck’s base of operations was moved to Savannah on the Tennessee River, which had been occupied since 5 March 1862.
Tennessee. Confederate forces numbering 10,000 men under Major-General Leonidas Polk reached Humboldt where General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard was collecting the Army of Mississippi for the defence of western Tennessee. This was the crossing point of the Mobile & Ohio Railroad and the Memphis & Louisville Railroad. The railroad offered some mobility for Beauregard to defend the extended line from Memphis to Corinth, Mississippi, by using trains to shift his troops.
Virginia. Skirmish at Stephenson’s Depot.
Virginia. As the Union army of Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks approached Winchester from Harper’s Ferry, Confederate Major-General Thomas Jonathan Jackson evacuated the town and retreated to Mount Jackson. Jackson’s retreat away from superior numbers continued for ten days through Kernstown and Strasburg and then past the Massanutten mountains.
Virginia. The Union Army of the Potomac withdrew northwards across Bull Run and made camp around Fairfax.
Virginia. Union Brigadier-General Jacob Dolson Cox began new operations in western Virginia. He advanced with four brigades from Charleston and Gauley. One of these brigades was to head east through Lewisburg under Colonel George Crook while Cox took the two brigades of Colonel Eliakim Parker Scammon and Colonel Augustus Moor to cut the railroad near Newbern. The fourth was available as a reserve and as a guard for the lines of communications. The Confederates had two brigades in the area under Brigadier-General Henry Heth and Brigadier-General Humphrey Marshall, located near Lewisburg and Tazewell respectively.
