First Bayou Teche Expedition

Bahamas. USS Juniata, Commander John M B Clitz, captured the schooner Harvest north of the Bahamas with a cargo of cotton.

Georgia. Union Colonel Abel Delos Streight’s brigade left Moulton and travelled thirty-five miles to reach the western end of Day’s Gap, a narrow defile through rocky Sand Mountain. The raiders were halfway to their first objective: the cannon foundry and railroad machine shops at Rome. At dawn, Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest set off from Town Creek towards Moulton, Alabama, in an attempt to track down Streight’s raiders. At midnight, Forrest’s brigade of 1,000 cavalry and eight guns had covered fifty miles and camped within four miles of Streight’s troops near Day’s Gap.

Kentucky. Incident at Monticello.

Louisiana. Expedition to Hard Times Landing and Perkins’ Landing ended.

Louisiana. Union expedition from Opelousas to Bayou Boeuf and Chicotville began.

Mississippi. Demonstration at Haines’ Bluff and operation at Drumgould’s Bluff began.

Brookhaven, Mississippi. Union Colonel Benjamin Harrison Grierson’s raiding party headed towards Natchez but his “butternut guerrillas” warned him that seven companies of Confederate cavalry were on the way from Grand Gulf to intercept him. He abandoned his plans to reach Natchez and turned east to circle around towards Baton Rouge. They passed eastwards through Brookhaven during the afternoon and crossed the New Orleans, Jackson & Great Northern Railroad. They set fire to railroad cars and the station and tore up the track. They moved onwards to camp eight miles south of Brookhaven. A hundred miles remained ahead of them to their destination of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Grand Gulf, Mississippi. Union Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter led seven ironclad warships in an attack on the fortifications and batteries at Grand Gulf. The intention was to silence the Confederate guns and then to storm the area with seven companies of the 58th Ohio Infantry aboard the largely empty fleet of transports and barges. The Army transports had passed safely below the batteries during the night. The troops would secure a landing site for the rest of Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant’s army to follow. The Confederate commander at Grand Gulf was Brigadier-General John Stevens Bowen with his own division and garrison attachments.

The attack by the seven ironclads began at 8 am and continued until about 1.30 pm. Four batteries had been placed by the Confederates a quarter of a mile apart, dominating the Mississippi River. During the fight, the ironclads moved within a hundred yards of the Confederate guns and after a bombardment lasting five and a half hours silenced the lower batteries of Fort Wade. The Confederate upper batteries at Fort Coburn remained largely beyond reach and continued to fire unimpeded.

USS Benton took 70 hits while the USS Tuscumbia was struck 81 times and lost power, drifting downstream to run ashore on the Louisiana bank. USS Lafayette took 45 hits and USS Pittsburg 35 hits. The USS Carondelet, USS Mound City, and USS Louisville fought from greater range and avoided serious damage. The Union ironclads and the transports drew away at about 12.30 pm. After dark, the ironclads again engaged the Confederate guns again while the transports and barges ran the gauntlet past the Grand Gulf batteries. They succeeded with the loss of only one man and headed three miles downstream for De Shroon’s Plantation to embark the troops for a crossing of the Mississippi. The naval reverse at Grand Gulf meant that Grant’s troops could not land as originally intended but he immediately reverted to his alternative plans to land further downstream.

Union casualties were reported as 75 to 80 (18 dead), Confederate losses were at least 3 to 6 men killed, including the artillery commander Colonel William Wade, and 15 men wounded. (CWSAC Formative Battle – Confederate Victory)

ORDER OF BATTLE: GRAND GULF, MS

Union Department of the Tennessee: Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant
Mississippi River Squadron: Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter USN
USS Benton, USS Lafayette, USS Louisville, USS Pittsburg, USS Mound City, USS Carondelet, USS Tuscumbia

Confederate Military Division of the West: General Joseph Eggleston Johnston
Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana: Lieutenant-General John Clifford Pemberton
District Three (Port Hudson): Major-General Franklin Gardner
Garrison, Grand Gulf: Brigadier-General John Stevens Bowen

Mississippi. After the naval setback at Grand Gulf, Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant marched his men overland across Coffee Point to a point below the batteries at Grand Gulf. Union Major-General John Alexander McClernand’s XIII Corps sailed from New Carthage and disembarked at Hard Times, marched four miles across the point of land past Grand Gulf and waited at the landing of De Shroon’s (or Disharoon’s) Plantation for the transports to pass Grand Gulf overnight and to collect them again at dawn.

Snyder’s Bluff, Mississippi, also known as Snyder’s Mill. To ensure that Confederate troops were not withdrawn to Grand Gulf to assist the defenders there, a combined Union army-navy force feigned an attack on Snyder’s Bluff. They also demonstrated towards Haynes’ Bluff and the fortifications at Drumgould’s Bluff. In the afternoon, Lieutenant Commander K Randolph Breese, with eight gunboats (USS Tyler, USS Choctaw, USS DeKalb, USS Signal, USS Romeo, USS Linden, USS Petrel, USS Black Hawk), three mortar boats and ten transports carrying Major-General Francis Preston Blair’s division from XV Corps, inched up the Yazoo River to the mouth of Chickasaw Bayou where they spent the night.

Missouri. Skirmish in Johnson County. at Castor River involving Brigadier-General John Sappington Marmaduke.

North Carolina. Incident at Batchelder’s Creek.

Tennessee. Reconnaissance from La Grange into northern Mississippi began.

Tennessee. Reconnaissance from Murfreesboro along the Manchester Pike began.

Tennessee. Union reconnaissance on the Chapel Hill Pike.

Virginia. Union operations began at Deep Run and Franklin’s Crossing near Fredericksburg.

Virginia. Union operations began at Fitzhugh’s Crossing, Kelly’s Ford, Pollock’s Mill Creek, and White Oak Run.

Virginia. Skirmishes at Chancellorsville, Crook’s Run, Germanna Ford, Suffolk, Bernard House, and Fitzhugh’s Crossing.

Virginia. Union Major-General George Stoneman’s cavalry skirmished at Kellysville, Brandy Station, and Stevensburg.

Virginia. Reports were received at dawn by Confederate General Robert Edward Lee that the Union Army of the Potomac was crossing the Rappahannock in force upstream of Fredericksburg. Lee observed the activity of pontoon-building at Fredericksburg and conferred with Lieutenant-General Thomas Jonathan Jackson. He then sent despatches directing Lieutenant-General James Longstreet to disengage from the ineffectual siege at Suffolk and to rejoin the Army of Northern Virginia at Fredericksburg. Jackson was ordered to concentrate his corps which extended in a twenty-mile line from Fredericksburg down to Port Royal, Jackson was ordered to occupy the defences on Marye’s Heights and the reserve artillery was brought forward.

At noon, a report from Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart stated that 14,000 Union troops were heading for Gordonsville from Kelly’s Ford but, within a few hours, this was corrected to state that they were actually heading for Ely’s Ford and Germanna Ford. Lee ordered Stuart to bring his cavalry to the east of the Union army, exposing the country beyond to the Union cavalry, but providing Lee with the cavalry he needed to scout the enemy’s advance. By sundown, a courier had reported that Union troops were crossing in force at Ely’s Ford and Germanna Ford.

Lee ordered Major-General Richard Heron Anderson to bring his two brigades out of a potential encirclement at US Ford and to concentrate with the rest of his division near Chancellorsville, where the roads from Ely’s Ford and Germanna Ford converged. Anderson set out at 9 pm and by midnight he was looking to adopt a defensive position near Chancellorsville. Major-General Lafayette McLaws’ division was put on alert to join Anderson at short notice.

Virginia. Major-General George Stoneman and his 10,000 cavalrymen, more than two weeks behind schedule, followed next from their camps at Warrenton and set off for Raccoon Ford, ten miles west of Germanna Ford. Only one brigade of 1,000 cavalrymen in three small regiments was left to scout for the main army while another 500 men were left to protect camps and supplies north of the Rapidan. The remainder pushed on to descend on the Virginia Central Railroad at Louisa Court House.

Virginia. The head of Union Major-General Henry Warner Slocum’s XII Corps Slocum marched for Germanna Ford and surprised the Confederate detachment of a hundred men, capturing many in the process, and splashed across the chest-deep river. When men from Major-General Oliver Otis Howard’s XI Corps arrived behind Slocum’s column, they constructed a pontoon bridge with timbers they found ready prepared in the vicinity. In the early morning hours, they crossed to the south bank at Kelly’s Ford. They took up defensive positions to guard the crossing while Slocum’s XII Corps crossed at dawn, to be followed by Major-General George Gordon Meade’s V Corps, which was currently heading south-eastwards for Ely’s Ford over the Rapidan. Meade’s advance guard plunged across the river at Ely’s Ford at sunset and chased away the Confederate pickets. By midnight, his entire corps of 16,000 men had crossed the ford, ascended the south bank hills and lit fires to dry off.

Virginia. Incident at Bridgeport.

Virginia. Confederate Brigadier-General William Edmondson Jones met Brigadier-General John Daniel Imboden on the way to Philippi and their forces combined for the continuation of their raid.

Fairmont, Virginia. Confederate Colonel James A Mulligan’s troops entered Fairmont, fifteen miles south of Morgantown, and attacked a Union force for three hours before they were able to push them back to Grafton.
