1862 May 2nd

May 2 1862 Friday

Peninsula Campaign – Siege of Yorktown
First Corinth Campaign
Confederate Evacuation of New Mexico

Go to May 3 1862

Alabama. Operation at Athens, Elk River, Limestone Bridge, Mooresville, and Elk River ended.

Alabama. The brigade of Union Colonel John Basil Turchin arrived in Athens. After occupying the town Turchin assembled his three regiments and told them: “I shut my eyes for two hours. I see nothing.” Businesses were hit first by looters, and anything of value was stolen or destroyed. After rampaging through stores, the soldiers plundered private homes and a slave girl was raped. The soldiers also attempted to rape a servant girl. The violent behaviour of the soldiers caused a pregnant woman to suffer a miscarriage and die. The townspeople estimated the damage to be $55,000. When word of the outrageous misbehaviour reached Union Major-General Don Carlos Buell, Turchin offered to resign his commission. Buell refused to accept it, insisting instead on a court-martial as an example to others. Turchin’s court proceedings received national attention and became a focal point in the press for the wider debate on the degree of severity that was justified to conduct the war.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Litchfield.

Kansas. The Union Department of Kansas was established and Brigadier-General James Gilpatrick Blunt inspected the two main field commands available to him. These included a brigade of over 3,000 men collected at Fort Riley by Brigadier-General Robert Byington Mitchell (who had since been transferred to operations in northern Mississippi), and nearly 1,700 men at Fort Scott under Colonel Frederick Sigel Salomon. There were various additional detachments of regular and volunteer and local forces assigned to various posts, forts, and garrisons.

Kentucky. Expedition to Bowling Green and the Tennessee State Line began.

Missouri. A canal was completed to bypass the Confederate fortifications at Island No 10. However, the river level had dropped and only four small transport ships were able to get through to New Madrid. The draught of the ironclad gunboats was too great for them to pass downriver and the canal proved less helpful than intended when digging commenced.

North Carolina. Skirmish at Deep Gully on the Trenton Road involving Lieutenant Charles H Pope (1st Rhode Island Light Artillery).

South Carolina. USS Restless, Acting Lieutenant Conroy, captured the British blockade-runner Flash off the coast.

Tennessee. Expedition to Dresden, Trenton, and Paris began.

Tennessee. Skirmish near Lockridge’s Mill.

Virginia. Skirmishes at Louisa Court House and Trevilian’s Depot.
