Fort Bisland, Louisiana, also known as Irish Bend, Bayou Teche, Centreville, Indian Ridge, Indian Bend or Indian Village. During the night, Confederate Major-General Richard Taylor learned that a Union division had ascended the Atchafalaya River to land in his rear at Berwick and was now in a position to cut off the Confederate retreat from Fort Bisland. Taylor began evacuating supplies, men, and weapons. At about 9 am, Union Brigadier-General William Hemsley Emory’s division with two brigades (3/XIX) and one brigade of Brigadier-General Godfrey Weitzel’s division (1/XIX) advanced on Fort Bisland. By about 9 am, Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks had three brigades in position south of the Bayou Teche. The brigades were deployed with Weitzel on the left, Brigadier-General Halbert Eleazer Paine’s brigade on the right (anchored on Bayou Teche), and Colonel Timothy Ingraham’s brigade in support. Opposing the Union forces south of the Teche was the former “Arizona Brigade” commanded by Confederate Brigadier-General Henry Hopkins Sibley. North of Bayou Teche was the Union brigade of Colonel Oliver P Gooding, which faced off against Brigadier-General Jean Jacques Alfred Alexander Mouton’s Confederate brigade.

The attack on Fort Bisland began between 11 am and 2 pm and continued until dusk. In addition to the Confederate forces in the earthworks, the gunboat CSS Diana shelled the attackers. Four Union gunboats had joined the fray by the late afternoon. The Union advance pressed to within 400 yards of the fortification before night fell.

Meanwhile, Union Brigadier-General Cuvier Grover’s division (4/XIX) was on its way to envelop Fort Bisland by landing at Irish Bend on Bayou Teche. They were delayed in disembarkation until 4 pm because the boats could not find a location where they could draw closer than 100 yards to the shore, and where adequate roads led inland to Bayou Teche. Taylor responded quickly to meet Grover’s threat. Leaving a small force under Colonel Thomas Green at Fort Bisland to make a show of resistance to Emory and Weitzel. Taylor moved the bulk of his troops to harass Grover’s landing. The Confederates skirmished vigorously and kept Grover’s troops pinned to the shore while Taylor extracted his force from the trap and withdrew to safety up Bayou Teche. That night, Grover ordered the rest of  his division to cross Bayou Teche and to prepare for a new attack towards Franklin at dawn.

Union casualties were reported as 234 to 577 and Confederate as 450 in three days of skirmishing along Bayou Teche. (CWSAC Limited Battle – Union Victory)

Mississippi. The crew of a launch under Acting Master George C Andrews CSN, which had left Mobile on 6 April captured the steamboat Fox in the coal yard at Pass a l’Outre, Mississippi.

Mississippi. Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant ordered Major-General Charles Smith Hamilton to serve under Major-General John Alexander McClernand for the campaign against Vicksburg. Hamilton objected, although McClernand outranked him, and offered his resignation. Grant accepted it gladly, forwarding several pages of documentation to Washington to support his case against Hamilton.

Mississippi. Union Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter reported the progress with the plans to attack Vicksburg. He had changed the armament of some of his ships in order to place three 11-inch guns in the bow of each one to make them more effective against shore batteries. After Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant embarked his army at Carthage he would seize Grand Gulf under the supporting fire of the gunboats and make it the base of his operations on the eastern shore of the Mississippi. Porter’s ships would engage the Vicksburg batteries while the transports passed at night under the cover of gunsmoke.

Porter ordered eight gunboats to the mouths of the Arkansas and White Rivers to meet any threat at from those directions. Porter also sent a sizable force into the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers; in all, 23 vessels including the Marine Brigade now operated in the Tennessee River, 14 of which mounted a total of 97 guns. His main difficulty was a shortage of trained and experienced mariners to command and operate his ships.

North Carolina. Union expedition from New Bern to Swift Creek Village near Washington.

North Carolina. USS Escort ran the Confederate batteries and made its way through the Confederate siege into Washington. USS Escort delivered vital supplies and reinforcements in the form of a Rhode Island regiment. A Union relief column under Brigadier-General Henry Prince steamed up the Tar River to raise the siege of Washington. Once Prince saw the strength ofthe Confederate batteries, he turned his unprotected transport vessels around. A second effort under Brigadier-General Francis Barretto Spinola marched overland from New Bern with the same intention. Spinola was later defeated along Blount’s Creek and returned to New Bern.

North Carolina. Incident at Edenton Road.

South Carolina. The Blockade running steamer Stonewall Jackson attempted to enter Charleston Harbour. The ship dashed past USS Flag and USS Huron. The blockaders fired a hail of shells and holed her hull. The Stonewall Jackson was deliberately run aground and destroyed with its valuable cargo of artillery and 40,000 army shoes.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Chapel Hill resulted in the destruction of a Confederate forage train.

Tennessee. Union Colonel Abel Delos Streight’s brigade left Yellow Creek for Fort Henry.

Virginia. Reconnaissance of Winchester and Cedar Creek Valley ended.

Virginia. Incidents at Providence Church Road, Somerton Road, and Hauxhurst Mill.

Virginia. Skirmish at Elk Run.

Virginia. Skirmish at Snicker’s Ferry

Virginia. Union Major-General George Stoneman began a cavalry raid, aiming to pass behind Confederate General Robert Edward Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia in preparation for the planned Union crossing of the Rappahannock. Stoneman set out from Falmouth two weeks before the main advance of Major-General Joseph Hooker’s Army of the Potomac with the intention of raiding deep into the Confederate lines of communications. He took six cavalry brigades with 10,000 men and four horse artillery batteries with 22 guns, constituting the majority of the Cavalry Corps. They were due to cross over Rappahannock Bridge, thirty miles above Fredericksburg, at 7 am. They carried nine days of food and forage. Heavy rain and deteriorating raids raised the level and speed of the river and  delayed the crossing of the three cavalry divisions. Stoneman decided to wait on the northern bank until confirmation of the operation was received. He recalled the single brigade that had crossed and reported his delay to Major-General Joseph Hooker. Hooker ordered Stoneman to leave his guns and wagonsbehind  and to continue onwards and Stoneman responded that he would cross at dawn on 15 April.

Virginia. In cooperation with Confederate Major-General Daniel Harvey Hill’s advance on Washington, North Carolina, Lieutenant-General James Longstreet besieged the Union garrison at Suffolk with Major-General John Bell Hood’s and Major-General George Edward Pickett’s divisions, The Union garrison at Suffolk was commanded by Brigadier-General John James Peck. The Union works were formidable and manned by 25,000 men opposing Longstreet’s 20,000. The Confederate troops pushed their left flank forward to the Nansemond River and constructed a battery on Hill’s Point, which closed the garrison from Union shipping.
