Battle of Arkansas Post, AR (CWSAC Formative Battle Union Victory)

Marmaduke’s Missouri Raid

Arkansas River Expedition

Grant’s Central Mississippi Campaign

Arkansas. Union expedition from Huntsville to Buffalo River, near Kingston, began.

Arkansas Post, Arkansas, also known as Fort Hindman. Fort Hindman at Arkansas Post was garrisoned by Confederate Brigadier-General Thomas James Churchill with 4,500 to 5,000 men. Churchill had three brigades under Colonel Robert R Garland, Colonel James Deshler, and Colonel John W Dunnington. Union Major-General John Alexander McClernand’s expedition proceeded fifty miles up the Arkansas River to Arkansas Post and began to disembark near its destination. McClernand had a force of 30,000 men in 50 transport ships and was supported by thirteen gunboats including USS Baron De Kalb, USS Louisville, USS Cincinnati, USS Lexington, USS Rattler, and USS Black Hawk, under Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter who was aboard the tug Ivy. The gunboats engaged the Confederate batteries at Fort Hindman and covered the landing of troops During the evening, Union Colonel Daniel W Lindsey’s brigade of Brigadier-General Peter Joseph Osterhaus’ division landed with supporting cavalry and artillery on the west bank three miles from Fort Hindman to cut off the enemy escape. The rest of the force landed on the east bank and started up river towards Fort Hindman, protected by the gunboats. (CWSAC Formative Battle Union Victory)

Florida. Boat crews from USS Ethan Allen, Acting Master Isaac A Pennell, landed to destroy a large salt manufactory south of St Joseph’s.

Florida. The US transport Sparkling Sea was lost near Key West after striking the coral reef there. The USS Sagamore rescued the crew and passengers.

Mississippi. Evacuation of Holly Springs by the Union army.

Hartville, Missouri. Confederate Colonel Joseph C Porter’s Missouri Cavalry Brigade left Pocahontas to attack Union posts around Hartville. As Porter neared Hartville, he sent a detachment forward to reconnoitre. It succeeded in capturing the small militia garrison and occupying the town. Porter’s other troops moved on toward Marshfield. Confederate Major-General John Sappington Marmaduke’s main force remained around Springfield but retired in the afternoon without attacking, leaving most of the supplies at the vital depot in Union hands.

Tennessee. The anomalous organisation of the field forces of the Department of the Cumberland was resolved by re-designating the three Wings of XIV Corps (Cumberland) more appropriately. Centre XIV Corps (Cumberland) was renamed XIV Corps (Cumberland), Right Wing XIV Corps (Cumberland) was renamed XX Corps (Cumberland), and Left Wing XIV Corps (Cumberland) was renamed XXI Corps (Cumberland). Major-General George Henry Thomas assumed command of XIV Corps (Cumberland), Major-General Alexander McDowell McCook assumed command of XX Corps (Cumberland), and Major-General Thomas Leonidas Crittenden assumed command of XXI Corps (Cumberland). The Army of the Cumberland was led by Major-General William Stearns Rosecrans.

The cavalry of the army was also reorganised. The single cavalry division had expanded and had been designated an unofficial Corps in November. Major-General David Sloane Stanley continued as Chief of Cavalry with his two cavalry divisions under Brigadier-General Robert Byington Mitchell and Brigadier-General John Basil Turchin.

Virginia. Expedition from Yorktown to West Point and White House ended.

Virginia. Skirmish at Fairfax Court House

Virginia. Incidents at Brentsville, Grove Church, and Elk Run.
