Fredericksburg Campaign
Grant’s Central Mississippi Campaign

Go to November 30 1862

USA. The US Congress nominated, confirmed, or otherwise announced the promotion of 116 General Officers in the US Volunteers. Twenty-nine were promotions to Major-General in command of the increasing number of Departments, Army Corps, and other high commands that had been established. The remaining 87 promotions were to Brigadier-General, mostly to command brigades but also for territorial or special commands. This date saw the single highest number of Union promotions to General and effectively filled all the imminent vacancies. Further promotions were made, to fill vacancies or to direct new commands but never again at such a scale.

Arkansas. Expedition to Yellville ended.

Arkansas.  Confederate Brigadier-General John Sappington Marmaduke’s cavalry rejoined the main force of Major-General Thomas Carmichael Hindman on the Arkansas River. Learning from Marmaduke that Union Major-General James Gilpatrick Blunt was at Cane Hill, thirty miles away but over a hundred miles away from any reinforcement, Hindman planned a counter-offensive to destroy Blunt’s command.

California. Reconnaissance to Honey Lake ended.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Lumpkin’s Mill.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Waterford.

Mississippi. Incidents at Orizaba, Holly Springs, and the Junction of the Coldwater and Tallahatchie Rivers.

Missouri. Incident at Lafayette County.

Nevada Territory. Reconnaissance to Fort Churchill ended.

North Carolina. USS Mount Vernon, Acting Lieutenant Trathen, captured the blockade-runner Levi Rowe off New Inlet, with a cargo of rice.

Pennsylvania. Union Captain H A Adams was ordered to special duty at Philadelphia as coordinator of coal supply for the US Navy. All coal used in the US Navy at that time was anthracite and came from the eastern district of Pennsylvania. It was forwarded from the mines to Philadelphia either by rail or barge down the Schuylkill River. There it was loaded into coal schooners and sent onward to the various blockading squadrons. Before Adams was ordered to this duty, squadron commanders had considerable difficulty in keeping their ships supplied with coal. The consumption of coal in the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron alone was currently approximately 950 tons a week.

Tennessee. Expedition to Sparta ended.

Tennessee. Union Reconnaissance Stewart’s Ferry on Stone’s River to Baird’s Mills began.

Virginia. Incident at Berryville.

Virginia. Union Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside returned to the Army of the Potomac at Falmouth after his military conference at Aquia Creek. He continued to develop his plan to attack at Fredericksburg with his entire army, apart from Major-General Franz Sigel’s Reserve Grand Division which was holding Manassas as protection for the capital.
