June 11 1863 Thursday

Port Hudson, LA

Vicksburg Campaign – Siege of Vicksburg

Gettysburg Campaign

Siege of Port Hudson

Hines’ Indiana Raid

Alabama. Skirmish at Burnsville.

Arkansas. Reconnaissance to Jacksonport.

Georgia. Union troops looted and burned most of the town of Darien, including the homes of black residents, mostly slaves. The destruction of the undefended city, which was of little strategic importance, was carried out by the 54th Massachusetts (Colored) Infantry under the command of the reluctant Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, and by the 2nd South Carolina Colored Infantry under the command of Colonel James Montgomery. Montgomery ordered the town to be looted and burned to damage the Confederates’ ability to supply food and materials for their war effort. Montgomery’s troops allegedly broke ranks and looted freely, while Shaw ordered his troops to take only what would be useful at camp. He later described the raid as a “Satanic action”. After the destruction, Union gunboats blockaded the port.

Kentucky. Incidents at Mount Sterling and Slate Creek.

Kentucky. Skirmish at Scottsville

Port Hudson, Louisiana. Confederate Major-General Franklin Gardner had established strong defensive works in a semi-circular pattern around Port Hudson, anchored at each end by the hundred-foot high bluffs on the Mississippi River. He built two forts north of the Railroad: one was square and the other pentagonal in plan, with a small redoubt and a network of trenches between them. These were held by the brigades of Colonel I G W Steedman, Colonel W R Miles, and Brigadier-General William Nelson Rector Beall. Beall’s brigade was as large as the other two combined. Beall’s men protected a double line of bastions in the south and the largest of these surmounted the crest of a ridge and was named the Citadel. All the works had been well designed and located to provide mutually supporting fire.

Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks’ Army of the Gulf had been conducting siege operations for nearly two weeks when Banks decided to attempt a surprise attack to expedite matters. Union Rear Admiral David Glasgow Farragut’s fleet delivered a twenty-hour preparatory bombardment from gunboats on the river, but this threatened to exhaust their ammunition supply. Banks planned an attack that should avoid the heavy casualties of a general attack and ordered a probing night action to begin at 3 am. The Confederate sentries were fully alert and the advance was quickly repelled after only a small number of men had penetrated the obstacles to reach the defensive lines. Some men escaped back to their starting point, while others surrendered for fear of running the gauntlet of fire. The attack contributed little more than casualties to the progress of the siege.

Maryland. Union reconnaissance began from Brightwood, DC, via Seneca Mills and Poolesville, to Leesburg, Aldie, and Chantilly in Virginia.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Smith’s Bridge near Corinth.

Mississippi. Union reinforcements arrived at the Vicksburg siege lines in the form of a division of 5,000 men under Major-General Francis Jay Herron, which was transferred from the Department of the Missouri. Herron’s troops were attached to XVII Corps and took up a position on the farthest southern end of the siege works. Nine Union divisions now conducted the siege of Vicksburg while yet more reinforcements were expected to arrive within a few days from the Department of the Ohio. Their arrival would permit seven divisions to face eastwards to defend the siege lines from any threat arising from the rear while the remainder invested the fortified city.

ORDER OF BATTLE: UNION HERRON’S DIVISION

Union Department of the Tennessee: Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant
Army of the Tennessee: Ulysses Simpson Grant
XVII Corps (Tennessee): Major-General James Birdseye McPherson

North Carolina. USS Florida, Commander John Pyne Bankhead, captured the blockade running steamer Calypso attempting to dash into Wilmington with a cargo including drugs, provisions, and armour-plating iron for ironclad warships.

Ohio. Clement Laird Vallandigham, having run the Union blockade to Canada, was nominated in absentia for Governor of Ohio on the Democratic ticket as an expression of protest at his exile.

South Carolina. Union operation began at Little Folly Island to destroy the wrecked steamer Ruby.

South Carolina. The steamer Havelock ran past the blockade of USS Memphis, USS Stettin, and USS Ottawa at Charleston, but was so severely damaged by the blockaders’ fire that she was found at daybreak aground and ablaze on Folly Island.

Tennessee. Incident at Strawberry Plains.

Tennessee, Skirmish at Triune involving Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Utah Territory. Stephen S Harding was removed as Governor of Utah Territory and replaced by James D Doty.

Virginia. Union reconnaissance began from Brightwood, DC, via Seneca Mills and Poolesville in Maryland, to Leesburg, Aldie, and Chantilly.

Virginia. Incidents at Deep Run and Franklin’s Crossing.

Virginia. Skirmish at Diascund Bridge.

Virginia. Skirmish at Suffolk as Union pickets drove off Confederate attackers.

Virginia. A boat crew from USS Coeur De Lion, Acting Master W G Morris, seized and burned two schooners, the Odd Fellow and Sarah Margaret in Coan River.

Virginia. As Confederate forces approached the Shenandoah Valley, the Union garrisons in VIII Corps (Middle Department) under Major-General Robert Cumming Schenck were widely dispersed. Brigadier-General Benjamin Franklin Kelley’s division (1/VIII) was at Harper’s Ferry with about 10,000 men, and Colonel Benjamin Franklin Smith’s brigade (3/1/VIII) with 1,200 men was detached at Martinsburg. Union Brigadier-General Robert Huston Milroy’s division (2/VIII) had about 9,000 men at Winchester, and Colonel Andrew T McReynolds’ brigade (3/2/VIII) was at Berryville with 1,800 men. Although Milroy had received orders to join Kelley at Harper’s Ferry, he believed that he could hold Winchester against the enemy and decided not to retreat.

Virginia. Union Major-General Joseph Hooker extended the right flank of the Army of the Potomac from Fredericksburg towards the line of the Orange & Alexandria Railroad. Hooker was constrained from further movements by the presence of the Confederate I Corps and III Corps in his front. He began to shadow the Confederate advance, following strict instructions to keep his army between the Confederates and the capital at Washington, DC. For easier control during the march, he formed two unofficial wings in the Army of the Potomac. Major-General John Fulton Reynolds was given the temporary direction of his own I Corps as well as of III Corps and XI Corps. Hooker managed the other wing with II Corps, V Corps, VI Corps, and XII Corps. This second wing was subsequently delegated to Major-General Henry Warner Slocum of XII Corps.

Virginia. The Cavalry Corps of the Union Army of the Potomac was reorganised. Brigadier-General David McMurtrie Gregg’s 3rd division and Colonel Alfred Napoleon Alexander Duffié’s 2nd division were merged into one division, and Gregg was assigned to command it. The 3rd cavalry division temporarily ceased to exist.

Virginia. At 8 pm, a detachment of the 1st New York Cavalry entered the town of Salem, having arrived from Berryville. They had been informed that the notorious Confederate raider Major John Singleton Mosby and his wife were hiding out in the Hathaway home. Union Captain William J Hathaway ordered his men to search the farmhouses in the area and they captured two raiders and 20 horses, but not the elusive Mosby.
