August 25 1863 Tuesday

Chickamauga Campaign

Burnside’s East Tennessee Campaign

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

Arkansas. Skirmish at Brownsville.

Kansas. After the recent massacre at Lawrence by Confederate Colonel William Clarke Quantrill and his band of raiders, Union Brigadier-General Thomas Ewing issued General War Order No 11 at Kansas City. This forced all residents of Bates, Cass, and Jackson counties, Kansas, to leave their homes, allowing only those citizens loyal to the Union to take refuge at Union military posts. Secessionists were given fifteen days to leave the state. In many cases, crops, houses, and barns were burned. Great resentment that would last for decades was generated by the forced evacuation of an estimated 20,000 residents from their homes. The action was carried out by the infamous Jayhawker, Charles Jennison. Jennison’s raids into Missouri were thorough and indiscriminate and left five counties in western Missouri wasted, save for the brick chimneys which are still called “Jennison Monuments” in those parts. The depopulated region became known as the “Burnt District”.

Missouri. Skirmish near Waynesville

Missouri. Skirmish near Independence.

Missouri. Union reconnaissance from Sedalia began.

Missouri. Skirmish at Hopewell with Confederate Colonel William Clarke Quantrill’s raiders.

South Carolina. Before work to strengthen the Confederate rifle pits in front of Fort Wagner could be completed, Union Major-General Quincy Adams Gillmore ordered division commander Brigadier-General Alfred Howe Terry to make a determined effort to capture them. Terry prepared the 24th Massachusetts Infantry from Brigadier-General Thomas Greely Stevenson’s brigade to lead the attack. The 3rd New Hampshire Infantry was assigned to give support. Each member of the 24th Massachusetts was equipped with an additional two shovels to immediately rebuild the rifle pits once taken. During the evening, Stevenson personally led the attack forward covered by fire from multi-barrelled Requa guns. The attack overran the 61st North Carolina Infantry, many of whom surrendered. Colonel George P Harrison, commanding Fort Wagner, ordered an artillery attack but the rifle pits were already being converted into a new siege line by their captors before this could prevent the work.

Texas. USS William G Anderson, Acting Lieutenant F S Hill, captured the schooner Mack Canfield off the mouth of the Rio Grande River with a cargo of cotton.

Virginia. The CSS Satellite, recently captured from the Union and now commanded by Lieutenant Wood, seized the schooners Golden Rod, with a cargo of coal, Coquette and Two Brothers with cargoes of anchor and chain, at the mouth of the Rappahannock River. The schooners were taken upriver by their captors. The Golden Rod drew too much water to go upriver so it was stripped and burned. The other two vessels were towed up to Port Royal where they were stripped of useful parts and destroyed. The USS Reliance and USS Satellite, which had been taken by boarding two days earlier, were both burned.

Virginia. Skirmish at Hartwood Church

Virginia. Skirmish at Lamb’s Ferry on the Chickahominy River as Union troops landed from a gunboat were driven back aboard by Confederate Brigadier-General Henry Alexander Wise

West Virginia. Union Brigadier-General William Woods Averell believed that his operations at Huntersville and Warm Springs had deceived the Confederates about his true intentions. He emphasised the deception by sending the 10th West Virginia Infantry back to Huntersville while his main body continued southwards across Jackson’s River towards Callaghan’s. Union scouts probed eastwards to Covington and south to Sweet Springs. Averell’s arrival at Callaghan’s revealed to Confederate Major-General Samuel Jones that the Union objective was Lewisburg. He recalled the brigade of Colonel George S Patton from Warm Springs and directed him to White Sulphur Springs, halfway between Callaghan’s and Lewisburg.
