Second Corinth Campaign

Go to October 4 1862

Atlantic Ocean. CSS Alabama, Captain Raphael Semmes, captured the ship Brilliant, bound from New York to Liverpool.

St John’s Bluff, Florida. A joint expedition under Commander Charles Steedman USN and Brigadier-General John Milton Brannon captured the Confederate battery at St John’s Bluff, which had been evacuated overnight by the Confederates of Lieutenant-Colonel Charles F Hopkins’ command. The Union troops pressed onwards to occupy Jacksonville and forced a general withdrawal from the area by the Confederates. (CWSAC Limited Battle Union Victory)

Georgia. Reconnaissance to Savannah River ended.

Kentucky. Union retreat from Cumberland Gap ended.

Kentucky. Incidents at Bardstown, Shepherdsville, and Cedar Church.

Kentucky. Union Brigadier-General George Washington Morgan’s former garrison of Cumberland Gap reached Greenup on the Ohio River after being cut off by Major-General Edmund Kirby Smith’s invasion of Kentucky. Morgan’s 8,000 men had marched over 200 miles from Cumberland Gap in sixteen days on their way to Camp Dennison in Ohio, losing just 80 men along the way.

Kentucky. Confederate Major-General Leonidas Polk held a council of war with his senior commanders and they all agreed to continue the army’s withdrawal towards Harrodsburg, in order to avoid contact with the stronger Union forces advancing towards Bardstown from Louisville. This decision was contradictory to the latest orders from General Braxton Bragg, to advance to the attack.

Second Corinth, Mississippi, also known as Corinth. A line of Union entrenchments extended along the north and east sides of Corinth, about two miles from the town, from the Chewalla Road in the northwest to the Mobile & Ohio Railroad in the south. These had been constructed by Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard’s army before they evacuated the town in May. The lines were too extensive for Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans’ garrison of 23,000 men to defend so he modified the lines to emphasise the defence of the town itself and the ammunition magazines near the junction of the two railroads. The inner line of redoubts, closest to the town was called the Halleck Line and this was much more substantial. A number of formidable named batteries, with guns positioned in strong earthwork defences, were part of the inner line: they were Battery Robinett, Battery Williams, Battery Phillips, Battery Tannrath, and Battery Lothrop, in the area known as College Hill. They were connected by breastworks, and during the last four days of September these works had been strengthened and the trees in the vicinity of the centrally placed Battery Robinett had been felled to form an abattis.
Rosecrans’ plan was to absorb the expected Confederate advance with a skirmish line holding the old Confederate entrenchments and to meet the bulk of the Confederate attack with his main force along the Halleck Line, about a mile from the centre of town. A final stand would be made around the batteries on College Hill. His men were provided with three days’ rations and 100 rounds of ammunition. During the morning, three of Rosecrans’ divisions advanced into the old Confederate rifle pits north and northwest of town. Brigadier-General Thomas Jefferson McKean was posted on the left, Brigadier-General Thomas Alfred Davies in the centre and Brigadier-General Charles Smith Hamilton on the right. Brigadier-General David Sloane Stanley’s division was held in reserve in the newer entrenchments near the northern and western perimeters of the town.
Confederate Major-General Earl Van Dorn was not aware of the strength of his opponent, who had called in two reinforcing divisions from the Army of the Tennessee, and he underestimated the difficulty of assaulting the prepared positions around Corinth. Van Dorn marched ten miles from Chewalla and deployed Major-General Mansfield Lovell’s division without delay on the right astride the Memphis & Charleston Railroad. The other two divisions of Brigadier-General Dabney Herndon Maury and Brigadier-General Louis Hébert extended the line further to the left and across the Mobile & Ohio Railroad. Maury and Hébert were under the command of Major-General Sterling Price and his Army of the West. Van Dorn’s plan was for a double envelopment, in which Lovell would open the fight, forcing Rosecrans to weaken his right to reinforce McKean’s division. When that happened, Van Dorn aimed to launch his main assault against the Union right and to take the defensive works. All three Confederate divisions would then converge on the railroad junction.
Van Dorn began his assault at 10 am with Lovell’s division attacking Colonel John Morrison Oliver’s brigade (McKean’s division). As soon as he became engaged, Maury’s division opened the fight with Davies’ left. Brigadier-General John McArthur’s brigade (McKean’s division) quickly moved four regiments to Oliver’s support and at the same time, Davies advanced his line to the entrenchments. These movements left a gap between Davies and McKean and the Confederates forced their way through at about 1.30 pm. The whole Union line fell back to within half a mile of the redoubts, leaving two guns in the hands of the Confederates, including a 24-pounder Parrott rifled gun. The Confederates occupied a defensible summit. During this part of the action Union Brigadier-General Pleasant Adam Hackleman was killed and Brigadier-General Richard James Oglesby (2/2/Corinth) was seriously wounded. Davies formed a strong Union line along the White House Ridge about a mile from the railroad intersection. Price attacked with Maury’s and Hébert’s divisions and drove the Union defenders back further towards their inner line. Around midday, Price’s Confederates broke off the fight to draw water from captured wells and prepared to administer the final blow in the morning. A further Confederate surge took the ridge and the town seemed to be at the mercy of the attackers. The Union defence now gathered around Battery Robinett and Battery Williams. Van Dorn was sure that he could achieve a victory the following day and he was persuaded by Price to allow his forces to rest and collect water. The advance was called off until the morning.
Rosecrans had been driven back at all points and night found his entire army, except for pickets, inside the inner line of redoubts. The weather had been hot and water was scarce, causing many men to fall out from their exertions. During the night the Confederates slept within 600 yards of the Union works and Van Dorn readjusted his lines to renew the attack the next day. He abandoned his plans for a double envelopment and decided on a head-on assault.

Missouri. Incident at Jollification.

South Carolina. Reconnaissance to May River ended.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Lafayette Landing, involving a Union landing party.

Texas. Union naval forces under Commander William Bainbridge Renshaw aboard USS Westfield, accompanied by USS Harriet Lane, USS Owasco, USS Clifton, and the mortar schooner Henry Janes, arrived off the harbour and city of Galveston.

Virginia. US President Abraham Lincoln visited Major-General George Brinton McClellan at Harper’s Ferry to assess the status of the Army of the Potomac and to encourage McClellan to begin an energetic pursuit of the depleted Confederate Army of Northern Virginia.

Virginia. Union reconnaissance to Zuni, the Blackwater River, and Franklin.

Virginia. Skirmish at Zuni.

Blackwater River. Virginia. A force of Union soldiers arrived at the Blackwater River near Franklin and engaged a Confederate group. The Confederates had thrown up a temporary bridge across the river and the Union raiders attempted to destroy it. Both sides withdrew after a short fight. Responding to a request for assistance in an anticipated assault on the Confederates at Franklin, a naval expedition under Lieutenant-Commander Charles W Flusser, comprising USS Commodore Perry, USS Hunchback, and USS Whitehead moved to engage the Confederate troops on the Blackwater River. The warships moved forward for six hours but the river was obstructed and the gunboats could not reach Franklin. The ships returned downstream as Confederate troops were felling trees in the river behind the gunboats in an attempt to block the river in their rear.
