Atlantic Ocean. CSS Alabama, Captain Raphael Semmes, captured the bark Conrad bound from Buenos Aires for New York with a cargo of wool. Semmes commissioned her as a cruiser under the name CSS Tuscaloosa and fitted it out on the day it was captured with armament, crew, and provisions.

New England. CSS Tacony, Lieutenant Charles Read, captured the ship Isaac Webb, bound from Liverpool to New York. The prize had some 759 passengers on board and was bonded as they could not be otherwise handled. The CSS Tacony then captured and burned the fishing schooner Micawber off the New England coast.

USA. The “Loyal Government of Virginia” was admitted to the Union as the thirty-fifth state, with the name West Virginia. US President Abraham Lincoln appointed Unionist Francis S Pierpont as the provisional Military Governor of Virginia, with his seat of government in Wheeling. The two counties of Berkeley and Jefferson were not transferred from Virginia to West Virginia until 10 March 1866.

Indian Territory. Operation at Fort Gibson ended.

Louisiana. Incidents at La Fourche Crossing and Jackson’s Crossing.

Louisiana. Confederate capture of Thibodeaux.

Louisiana, Union reconnaissance from Young’s Point to Richmond.

Louisiana. Union Brigadier-General William Hemsley Emory reported to Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks that the railroad from New Orleans to Terre Bonne was being wrecked and that communications with Brashear City had already been cut. He even suggested that New Orleans was in danger of falling to a Confederate advance. He reported that his garrison in the city numbered only 400 men while as many as 9,000 Confederates were closing in and making plans to rouse the civilian population.

La Fourche Crossing, Louisiana. Confederate Major-General Richard Taylor had sent an expedition under Colonel James Patrick Major and his 2nd Cavalry Brigade to break Union supply lines, disrupt Union activities and force an enemy withdrawal from Brashear City. The aim was to interrupt communications and supplies to the Union besieging force at Port Hudson. Major’s men carried out raids on Union forces, boats, and plantations and captured animals and supplies and recaptured liberated slaves. As Major’s cavalry rode through Thibodaux, Union Brigadier-General William Hemsley Emory, commanding the defences of New Orleans, assigned Lieutenant-Colonel Albert Stickney to command in Brashear City with orders to stop the Confederate raiders. Emory informed Stickney of Major’s descent on La Fourche Crossing and ordered him to send more troops there. Feeling that no real threat to Brashear City existed, Stickney led his troops to La Fourche Crossing instead, arriving at about 6 am in the morning. Once there Stickney sent out a company to ascertain the enemy’s whereabouts. Returning in the afternoon, the unit reported that they had exchanged fire with the enemy, who was approaching rapidly. During the afternoon, a company from Terre Bonne reinforced Stickney. The Confederate forces began driving in Stickney’s pickets around 5 pm. Confederate cavalry then advanced, and some Union troops, hidden in the grass, fired upon them. The Confederate cavalry fell back. After the Union troops fired a few more rounds, the Confederates withdrew in the direction of Thibodaux. More Union troops arrived to reinforce Stickney during the night and next morning. The Union soldiers were well protected behind improvised earthworks, the riverside levee, and the railroad embankment. Some of Major’s Confederates continued past La Fourche Crossing towards the railroad at Terrebonne thirty miles east of Brashear City.

Richmond, Louisiana. Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant had detached troops from the Vicksburg trenches to the western bank of the Mississippi River to prevent Confederate interference with his garrisons and supply lines. Grant first sent Brigadier-General Joseph Anthony Mower’s brigade to the vicinity of Milliken’s Bend. The immediate result of Mower’s arrival was to release Brigadier-General Alfred Washington Ellet’s Mississippi Marine Brigade for mobile action along the river.

When Grant learned of the presence of Major-General John George Walker’s Confederate division on the Louisiana side, he feared its presence could somehow aid in a Confederate escape from Vicksburg. Walker had attempted to attack the depots at Milliken’s Bend and Young’s Point to interrupt the Union supply lines, but he had not made the dangerous attempt to either reinforce or extract the Vicksburg garrison.

Ellet and Mower were ordered to cooperate against Walker’s division which had retired to the vicinity of Richmond. Richmond was an important point on the supply line providing Vicksburg with food from Louisiana. Ellet and Mower drove away Walker’s men and destroyed Richmond.

Ellet’s men returned to De Soto Point and constructed an artillery battery targeting an iron foundry recasting spent Union artillery shells. One company of Ellet’s brigade had been armed with Spencer repeating rifles. Anxious to see the results of this new weaponry, Ellet posted this company on De Soto Point, directly across from the Vicksburg water batteries, where they could plague the Confederate soldiers collecting fresh water.

Mississippi. Union Brigadier-General Alfred Washington Ellet’s Mississippi Marine Brigade was active throughout northeast Louisiana protecting plantations from marauding Confederate cavalry and guerrillas, including Captain William Clarke Quantrill’s command after it retreated to the area after being driven out of Missouri. The brigade’s burning of private homes and towns earned it the hatred of Confederate soldiers and civilians. The Confederates were not alone in holding the Marine Brigade in low regard.

Union Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter felt that the Marine brigade was undisciplined and its commander untrustworthy. Porter requested that the brigade be transferred to serve with the army under Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant’s command, but Grant was reluctant. Grant preferred to break up the brigade by converting the redundant steam rams to transport vessels and reassigning the officers and men. However, it proved impossible to locate the marauding Mississippi Marine Brigade. Assistant Secretary of the Navy Gustavus Vasa Fox reported that the transfer could take place if the command could only be located. Porter replied that the Marine Brigade was “the most expensive affair, for the little done, ever got up in the country. If it should be permitted to operate independently,” he added, “the Navy would bear all the odium of its doings.” The brigade was finally located but it remained intact and unreliable.

Maryland. Skirmish at Middletown.

Mississippi. Incidents at Tallahatchie River, Panola, Hernando, Rocky Crossing, Rocky Ford, and Mud Creek Bottom#.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Matthews’ Ferry on the Coldwater River.

Mississippi. Skirmish near Senatobia.

Mississippi. A heavy bombardment of Vicksburg lasted for six hours. Union mortar boats and gunboats supported the artillery bombardment on land but there was little reply to the naval attack. After this extensive bombardment, the Confederates began to prepare boats for an evacuation of the city by river.

Missouri. Union reconnaissance from Waynesville to Robideaux and Gasconade began.

New Mexico Territory. Incidents at Fort McRae and Warm Springs.

Ohio. Incident in Holmes County.

Greencastle, Pennsylvania. The Union 1st New York Cavalry was covering the retreat of Major-General Robert Huston Milroy’s command after its defeat in the Shenandoah Valley and inflicted twenty casualties on the pursuing Confederates at Greencastle.

Tennessee. Skirmishes at Strawberry Plains, Rogers Gap, and Dixon Springs near Knoxville (Sanders’ Raid).

Utah. Skirmish with Ute Indians at Government Springs.

Virginia. USS Primrose, Acting Master Street, captured the sloop Richard Vaux off Blakistone Island in the Potomac River.

Virginia. Following the fighting at Middleburg, a heavy rainstorm during the night soaked the Loudoun Valley, ending a six-week drought. In the downpour, Confederate Brigadier-General Wade Hampton’s cavalry brigade reinforced Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s cavalry screen in the Loudon valley, deploying near Brigadier-General Beverly Holcombe Robertson’s brigade along the Ashby’s Gap Turnpike. Colonel John Randolph Chambliss’ brigade (vice- W H F Lee) moved northward and joined Brigadier-General William Edmondson Jones’ brigade near Union. Colonel Thomas Taylor Munford’s brigade was further north, guarding access to the Snickers’ Gap. Captain John Singleton Mosby’s partisan rangers scouted the Union positions and provided much-needed intelligence on their movements.

The Union cavalry commander, Major-General Alfred Pleasonton, frustrated by Stuart’s dismounted cavalry using stone walls for protection, asked for and received infantry support from Major-General George Gordon Meade’s V Corps to help flush them out. Pleasonton had still not located the Confederates’ main body, a task that the War Department prodded him relentlessly to accomplish. Trying again to evade Stuart’s cavalry screen, Pleasonton sent Brigadier-General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick’s brigade along the Ashby’s Gap Turnpike, supported by Colonel Strong Vincent’s brigade of infantry, with Brigadier-General David McMurtrie Gregg’s cavalry division in reserve. Brigadier-General John Buford’s cavalry division was ordered to turn the Confederate flank. A Confederate prisoner revealed that Confederate infantry was in force in the Shenandoah Valley, but their cavalry was unsupported east of the ridge.

Virginia. Skirmish at Diascund Bridge.

West Virginia. The “Loyal Government of Virginia” was admitted to the Union as the thirty-fifth state, with the name West Virginia. President Abraham Lincoln appointed Unionist Francis S Pierpont provisional Military Governor of Virginia, with his seat of government in Wheeling. The two counties of Berkeley and Jefferson were not transferred from Virginia to West Virginia until 10 March 1866.
