1862 November 5th

November 5 1862 Wednesday

Barbee’s Crossroads, VA

Grant’s Central Mississippi Campaign

Arkansas. Union expedition from Helena to Moro began. Incident at Huntsville.

District of Columbia. US President Abraham Lincoln had orders drawn up to relieve Major-General George Brinton McClellan of his command of the Army of the Potomac. The orders were entrusted the following day to Brigadier-General Catharinus Putnam Buckingham, the confidential Assistant Adjutant-General to the Secretary of War, for delivery. McClellan’s successor was named as Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside. Burnside was outranked by Major-General Irvin McDowell, but McDowell was not currently under orders pending the enquiry into the conduct of the Second Battle of Bull Run.

Kentucky. Skirmish near Piketon.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Jumpertown.

Missouri. Operation in Jackson County ended.

Missouri. At 10 am, Confederate Colonel William Clarke Quantrill and Colonel Warner Lewis led over three hundred guerrillas to Lamar. Quantrill’s men entered Lamar from the north and Lewis’ men from the south to attack the Union outpost. They rode down the streets to the courthouse and encountered Union Captain Martin Breeden and a company of the 8th Missouri Cavalry who were lying in wait for the Confederates. A firefight lasted for one and a half hours. The Confederates were forced out of town but not before setting on fire a third of the town’s houses. The Confederates lost six men killed and at least 20 wounded.

North Carolina. USS Seymour was sent downriver from Hamilton to destroy the Confederate works at Rainbow Bluff.

North Carolina. USS Louisiana, Acting Lieutenant R.T. Renshaw, captured the schooner Alice L Webb at Rose Bay.

Tennessee. Union reconnaissance from La Grange towards Somerville.

Tennessee. Incident at Mitchellsville.

Tennessee. Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest made a cavalry attack on the defences of Nashville held by Brigadier-General James Scott Negley.

Tennessee. Union Major-General George Henry Thomas succeeded Brigadier-General Charles Champion Gilbert in command of the Centre XIV Corps (Cumberland). Thomas had been second-in-command to Major-General Don Carlos Buell in the Army of the Ohio and also of Major-General William Starke Rosecrans in the Army of the Cumberland. He now received a field command commensurate with his experience and seniority in the Army of the Cumberland, which now numbered over 74,500 men. Furthermore, Gilbert’s commission as general had not yet been confirmed and his experience lay more in the realm of staff than field command.

Tennessee. The composite parts of the Army of the Cumberland – temporarily known as I Corps, II Corps, and III Corps – were formally designated as the Right Wing, Left Wing, and Centre of XIV Corps in the Army of the Cumberland

Tennessee. Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans made the first attempt at a unified cavalry command in the western theatre by organising all of his available cavalry into a single division. This would be assigned to Brigadier-General David Sloane Stanley on 24 November 1862 but remained temporarily under Colonel John Kennett (4th Ohio Cavalry).

Virginia. Operation in Bath County, Highland County and Augusta County began.

Virginia. Reconnaissance to Manassas Gap began. Incident at Warrenton.

Virginia. Expedition to Pendleton County began.

Barbee’s Crossroads, Virginia, also known as Southeast Manassas Gap or Chester Gap. Union Brigadier-General Alfred Pleasonton led 1,500 cavalrymen in an attack on Confederate Major-General Wade Hampton with about 3,000 men near Manassas Gap. Union Colonel David McMurtrie Gregg led the 8th Pennsylvania Cavalry and the 6th US Cavalry around the enemy’s right while Colonel Benjamin Franklin Davis and 8th New York Cavalry attacked their left. Colonel Elon John Farnsworth and the 8th Illinois Cavalry attacked the centre. The Confederates withdrew without being pursued. The Union forces lost 15 casualties and the Confederates had 36 casualties.
