August 15 1863 Saturday

Burnside’s East Tennessee Campaign

Chickamauga Campaign

Gillmore’s Operations in Charleston Harbour – Siege of Fort Wagner

Arkansas. Skirmish at Bentonville.

Arkansas. Union Major-General Frederick Steele reached Clarendon from Helena. It took several days to transport the army across the White River, while losses mounted from extreme heat, sickness, and a shortage of clean water. Steele turned his army northward to Devall’s Bluff, which was considered to be a healthier location due to its higher elevation.

Kentucky. Union Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside and his Army of the Ohio left Camp Nelson, near Lexington, and headed towards eastern Tennessee, beginning a new campaign to capture Knoxville. Camp Nelson was established as a supply depot near Hickman Bridge, the only bridge across the Kentucky River above the state capital at Frankfort. The site was selected to protect the bridge, to provide a base of operations in central Kentucky and to support an attack on Cumberland Gap and eastern Tennessee. The site was inadequate and Camp Nelson’s distance from Cumberland Gap and Knoxville, combined with a lack of railroads and poor weather, hampered the Union advance. Its role gradually diminished as a supply depot, but it became increasingly important for training black soldiers. By August 1863 at least 3,000 black railroad workers and former slaves were stationed at Camp Nelson. Eventually, 10,000 African-Americans were emancipated from slavery in exchange for service in the Union army at Camp Nelson. Camp Nelson was the smallest of the three locations where black Union soldiers were trained; the others were in Boston, Massachusetts, and New Orleans, Louisiana. The largest number of African-American recruits enlisted between June and October 1864.

The Union advance was made in four columns totalling about 24,000 men. One column of cavalry rode on the left through Big Creek Gap and another passed to the right through Winter’s Gap. Two divisions of infantry marched between them towards Kingston at the confluence of the Clinch River and the Tennessee, forty miles below Knoxville, which was the first designated objective of the advance. The fourth column with one infantry division was ordered to capture Cumberland Gap. Burnside had decided to march with his three divisions of XXIII and not to wait for the return of his two divisions of IX Corps from Vicksburg. Sickness had reduced the numbers in IX Corps to a mere 6,000 available men. These would join the campaign later after they had rested and recuperated.

Confederate Major-General Simon Bolivar Bucker had moved Brigadier-General Preston Smith’s division, Brigadier-General John Pegram’s cavalry brigade and Colonel J S Scott’s cavalry brigade to Loudon, to be nearer to Chattanooga. As most of the Confederate defenders had been drawn away to supporting distance of Chattanooga, the immediate opposition to Burnside’s advance comprised only one brigade of 2,500 well equipped and supplied men fortified at Cumberland Gap and a second brigade guarding the railroad east of Knoxville.

North Carolina. Incident at Edenton.

South Carolina. The Union 1st Division of XI Corps, under Brigadier-General George Henry Gordon, was transferred from the Army of the Potomac in Virginia to South Carolina, to strengthen the inadequate forces operating around Charleston.

South Carolina. The world’s first genuine submarine, the H L Hunley, arrived at Charleston on two railroad cars from Mobile, Alabama, and was launched in the harbour. The novel Confederate weapon was a metal tube thirty feet long and less than four feet wide. It was propelled manually by its eight-man crew who rotated a screw propeller from within the vessel. Ballast tanks let in water to submerge the boat and it was levelled by fins on its sides. A small glass port enabled the steersman to attempt to steer. Tests in Mobile Bay had shown that the ship could stay underwater for two hours and it had successfully blown up two flatboats with a 90-pound explosive charge towed 200 feet behind it in a copper cylinder. The plan of attack was to submerge and proceed below the target, whereupon the cylinder would be dragged against the enemy’s keel where it would be detonated by a percussion fuse. General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard observed the volunteer crew in training and was immediately persuaded of its value. He awaited its contribution to ending the Union blockade. A reward of $100,000 was offered by John Fraser and Company for the destruction of USS New Ironsides, or the wooden frigate USS Wabash, and the sum of $50,000 for each monitor sunk.

Tennessee. The cavalry of the Confederate Army of Tennessee was mainly concentrated in an unofficial cavalry corps commanded by Major-General Joseph Wheeler. However, the cavalry of Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest continued to operate independently of Wheeler’s command, while Brigadier-General Philip Dale Rodney’s led a largely autonomous command in Kentucky.
