June 26 1863 Friday

Portland, ME

Vicksburg Campaign – Siege of Vicksburg

Gettysburg Campaign

Siege of Port Hudson

Tullahoma Campaign

Stuart’s Third Ride in Pennsylvania

Taylor’s Expedition to the Mississippi

Arkansas. Confederate Major-General Sterling Price’s expedition marched through heavy rain towards Cotton Plant and Clarendon, and approached within fifty miles of their obejctive at Helena.

Port Hudson, Louisiana. Union ships, mortar boats and artillery laid down a heavy bombardment on Port Hudson. USS Essex was hit by a near-fatal shot that just missed the boiler. The bombardment suppressed what remained of the Confederate artillery. The Union siege continued, and three mines were dug underneath the opposing works, two of them directed against the Priest Cap, and one under the Citadel. After the mines were finished, chambers at the end of the mines would be loaded with powder, and exploded under the Confederate works, destroying them, and blowing gaps in the trench lines. At this point, an infantry assault would be launched, hopefully overrunning the entire fortification. The Priest Cap bastion had a particularly elaborate defence system with telegraph wire staked to a height of 18 inches to trip attacking infantrymen. The Confederates launched a trench raid by the 16th Arkansas Infantry against the Priest Cap sap, taking seven prisoners, and capturing weapons and supplies.

Portland, Maine. The Confederate raider CSS Tacony, Lieutenant Charles Read CSN, was being pursued by the Union Navy. To thwart their pursuers the Confederates transferred their supplies and cargo onto the Archer, a Maine fishing schooner out of Southport. Burning the Tacony, Read hoped the Union Navy would believe the ship was destroyed. Read learned that revenue cutter Caleb Cushing and a modern passenger steamer, Chesapeake, were in port. The steamer Fort City was also in Portland and two gunboats were under construction. Read made a daring plan to enter the harbour during the night in order to seize the cutter and steamer. CSS Archer sailed in boldly at sunset, anchoring in full view of the shipping. Read discussed the plan with his crew but found difficulties in his scheme. As the nights were short it was essential to get the steamer underway and to get clear of the forts before being discovered. Engineer Eugene H Brown was doubtful that he could get the engines of the steamer started without the assistance of another engineer. Read therefore decided to concentrate on capturing the revenue cutter alone. A raiding party entered the harbour by sailing past Portland Head Light. The rebels disguised themselves as fishermen and entered the harbour late in the evening.

Maryland. The Union Army of the Potomac began concentrating towards Frederick. Union Major-General Joseph Hooker devised a plan to advance westwards into the Cumberland Valley, in order to cut the Confederate lines of communications back to Virginia. He requested control of the garrison at Harper’s Ferry to enable its cooperation in this movement. He recommended that Harper’s Ferry should be evacuated as it was known to be indefensible if the surrounding heights were lost. His requests to withdraw the garrison and his objections to the decision to keep the garrison exposed there provoked a dispute with the General-in-Chief Major-General Henry Wager Halleck and President Abraham Lincoln. Frustrated by the unwavering insistence to defend Harper’s Ferry and  the obstructions to his plans, Hooker tendered his request for relief from command at 1 pm. Halleck replied at 8pm to say that the decision to relieve him lay with the President. However, at 7.30 pm Colonel James Allen Hardie (Assistant Adjutant-General and assistant of the Secretary of War) had already left Washington by special train to convey the orders relieving Hooker and appointing his successor.

Mississippi. Incident at Messenger’s Ferry.

Mississippi. The Confederates had been making great effort to bring supplies to Vicksburg through Louisiana and across the Mississippi but all to no avail. Union troops at Young’s Point and Milliken’s Bend and relentless patrols by gunboats kept the Confederates in check, although they persisted in attacking transports from the river banks.

Mississippi. The guns were removed from the USS Cincinnati and a battery constructed onshore. This raised the number of heavy naval guns landed from the gunboats in the rear of Vicksburg to ten in two batteries, some of them manned by sailors.

New York. Union Rear Admiral Andrew Hull Foote USN died in New York City of the wounds he received at Fort Donelson in 1862.

Pennsylvania. Skirmish near Gettysburg. Elements of Confederate Major-General Jubal Anderson Early’s division occupied the town of Gettysburg after chasing off newly raised Pennsylvania militia in a series of minor skirmishes. Early laid the town under tribute but did not collect any significant supplies. Soldiers burned several railroad cars, a covered bridge, and destroyed nearby railroad tracks and telegraph lines. Early’s division was within six miles of its objective at York while the two other divisions of II Corps were at Carlisle, within striking distance of the state capital of Harrisburg on the Susquehanna River.

Pennsylvania. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee established his headquarters outside Chambersburg, surrounded by Lieutenant-General James Longstreet’s I Corps. Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill’s III Corps camped six miles further to the east at Fayetteville. Lee issued orders enjoining discipline and forbearance on the Confederate army in Pennsylvania, seeking in part to encourage the Northern Peace movement. Lee also waited for the reappearance of his cavalry under Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart in order for them to screen and scout on his right flank during his proposed advance to the Susquehanna Rover.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Beech Grove.

Tennessee. Incidents at Rogers’ Gap and Hoover’s Gap.

Tennessee. With the eastern end of Liberty Gap blocked by Major-General William Joseph Hardee’s Corps, Confederate General Braxton Bragg ordered Lieutenant-General Leonidas Polk to continue onwards and to advance in the morning through Guy’s Gap in order to attack the rear of Union Major-General McDowell McCook’s XX Corps. McDowell was facing Liberty Gap where Hardee’s Corps held them fixed in front. Polk protested about the risky manoeuvre, but Bragg insisted on its execution.

At Hoover’s Gap, Confederate Major-General Alexander Peter Stewart sent a message just before noon to the brigades of Brigadier-General Bushrod Rust Johnson and Brigadier-General William Brimage Bate, who had been engaged for two days, stating that he was pulling back and that they should also withdraw. Their withdrawal finally permitted Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans to move in force through Hoover’s Gap, albeit slowed by heavy rains.

Bragg heard overnight that strong Union forces, preceded by mounted infantry, were already on their way towards Manchester and into his rear. The forcing of Hoover’s Gap required Bragg to cancel the order to Polk to counter-attack through Guy’s Gap. Bragg was also forced to give up his defensive line along the Duck River from Shelbyville to Wartrace in order to protect his depot and communications at Tullahoma. He reluctantly issued orders for a general withdrawal was ordered to the Tullahoma line.

Meanwhile, Rosecrans ordered McCook to withdraw northwards from his exposed position at Liberty Gap and to skirt around the upper reaches of the Highland Rim. McCook’s Corps would then follow behind XIV Corps at Hoover’s Gap to exploit the breakthrough.

Virginia. Incident at South Anna Bridge.

Virginia. Union Commander Pierce Crosby with the gunboats USS Commodore Barney, USS Commodore Morris, USS Western World, and USS Morse, and the Army gunboats Smith, Briggs, and Jesup, arrived at White House on the Pamunkey River. The gunboats were stationed at White House and Jesup remained at West Point. Their instructions were for two ships to run daily from White House to West point to protect the army transports and to look for signs of enemy activity. A naval landing party at White House destroyed rails and a turntable inside an earthwork on which the Confederates had intended to place a railroad car mounting a heavy gun.

Virginia. Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s raiders moved from Buckland eastwards through Bristoe and Brentsville but detected no Union troops. They camped overnight south of Occoquan Creek.

Virginia. Brigadier-General William Henry Fitzhugh Lee was captured at Hickory Hill in Hanover County while convalescing from wounds. Union Colonel Samuel Perkins Spear’s cavalry raiders had reached Hanover from White House on the Pamunkey River.

West Virginia. Skirmish at Loup Creek as Confederate raiders made a surprise attack on a Union party, taking some prisoners.
