Battle of Stony Lake, DT (CWSAC Limited Battle Union Victory)

Operations in Charleston Harbour – Siege of Fort Wagner

Stony Lake, Dakota Territory. Following the action at Dead Buffalo Lake, Union Brigadier-General Henry Hastings Sibley continued his march after the retreating Sioux until he reached Stony Lake, where his animals’ exhaustion compelled him to encamp. The force resumed its pursuit again and Sibley discovered that a large number of Sioux under Chief Inkpaduta was moving towards him. He ordered the men to make defensive preparations. The Sioux searched for weak points in the soldiers’ position. Finding none, the Sioux rode off at great speed, avoiding pursuit. The Sioux had hoped to halt Sibley’s advance but were unable to do so. Sibley remarked in his report that Stony Lake was “the greatest conflict between our troops and the Indians, so far as the numbers were concerned.” Casualties were not reported. (CWSAC Limited Battle Union Victory)

Florida. USS Beauregard and USS Oleander and boats from USS Sagamore and USS Para attacked New Smyrna, under the command of Lieutenant-Commander Earl English. After shelling the town, the Union force captured and destroyed the vessels in the harbour and destroyed any buildings that had been occupied by troops.

Kentucky. Skirmish at Richmond involving Confederate Colonel John S Scott’s raiders.

Massachusetts. In response to the shortage of ships’ crewmen in the fleet at Charleston, South Carolina, USS Aries departed Boston with 200 men for service at Charleston. The ship would then return to New York to convey a further 200 sailors to Charleston.

Michigan. Union Commander John C Carter, commanding USS Michigan on a cruise of principal cities on Lake Erie to recruit men for the Navy, reported that his call at Detroit was opportune. There were fears of a riot against the draft but the arrival of the ship quelled anxiety. During August, USS Michigan performed a similar service Buffalo, New York.

Mississippi. Incidents at St Catherine’s Creek, Natchez, and Coldwater.

Mississippi. Following the successful campaign at Vicksburg, the Union XIII Corps (Tennessee) was reorganised for further operations. Major-General Cadwallader Colden Washburn assumed command of two consolidated divisions and on 7 August 1863, it was transferred to the Department of the Gulf with Major-General Francis Jay Herron’s 2nd Division now attached permanently.
