Goodrich’s Landing, Louisiana, also known as The Mounds, or Mound Plantation. or Lake Providence. After Union forces began occupying the river parishes of Louisiana, thousands of escaped slaves flocked to their camps. The Union forces leased some plantations and put the freedmen to work growing cotton or other crops; the proceeds from the sale of the crops helped defray expenses for food, clothing, and so on. African-American troops were assigned to protect these plantations, releasing other troops to fight. The Confederates, who were determined to recapture some of these freedmen and destroy the crops, undertook an expedition from Gaines’ Landing, Arkansas, to Lake Providence and targeted a plantation at Goodrich’s Landing. They believed that their raid would also disrupt the supply lines of the besieging Union forces at Vicksburg. Goodrich’s Landing was a cotton plantation situated on the west bank of the Mississippi River, and the landing served as a shipping point for the region’s cotton planters.

The Confederate force comprised 12th Texas Cavalry, 19th Texas Cavalry, 15th Louisiana Cavalry Battalion, Cameron’s Louisiana Battery and Ralston’s Mississippi Battery. The Union forces had constructed a fort on an Indian mound to protect some of these leased plantations, manned bu a garrison from the 1st Arkansas (Union) Infantry and 10th Louisiana (Union) Infantry.

The Confederates prepared to attack the fort but decided to demand unconditional surrender first, which the Union forces accepted. Later in the day, Confederate Colonel William H Parsons fought and defeated some companies of the 1st Kansas Mounted Infantry that approached the area. The Confederates then began burning and destroying the surrounding plantations, especially those that the Union had leased to escaped slaves. The Confederates destroyed the plantations and recaptured over a hundred former slaves.

Maryland. Skirmishes at Lisbon and Poplar Springs.

Maryland. Skirmish at Muddy Branch.

Maryland. Skirmish at Cooksville.

Westminster, Maryland. Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s raiders rode twenty miles from Rockville to Cooksville, where they captured a detachment of Union cavalry. They continued to Hood’s Mill, a station on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad between Baltimore and Frederick. They tore up tracks and burned a bridge at Sykeston, three miles to the east. Newspapers indicated that the Confederate army was at York and Carlisle, so Stuart departed northwards in the direction of Westminster, fifteen miles further north. Approaching the town from the south. Stuart was surprised at about 5 pm by a charge of Union cavalry. Two companies of 1st Delaware Cavalry were led by Major N B Knight in a brave but ineffective attack, losing nine Union soldiers killed and wounded and 18 Confederate casualties. Some reports state the Union loss was as high as 67 men, including prisoners.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Messenger’s Ferry on the Big Black River.

Mississippi. Having spent more than a month collecting a relief force and the equipment and transportation to move it towards Vicksburg, Confederate General Joseph Eggleston Johnston advanced with his four divisions from Canton towards the Union defences along the Big Black River.

Pennsylvania. Incident at Oyster Point.

Pennsylvania. During the night, at about 2 am, Confederate General Robert Edward Lee finally received reliable reports of the Union army’s dispositions from a spy known only as Harrison. His information forced a change to Lee’s plan to cross the Susquehanna. Lee was surprised to learn that the Union Army of the Potomac was already north of the Potomac River and in close proximity. The absence of the majority of Lee’s cavalry had allowed the Union army to approach largely undetected. Harrison reported that two Union corps were encamped at Frederick, two more were nearby and another two were on the march towards South Mountain to the west. Harrison also informed Lee that Union Major-General George Gordon Meade had replaced Major-General Joseph Hooker in command of the Union army. These dispositions revealed a threat to the Confederate line of communications that ran through the Cumberland Valley if the Union army were to cross South Mountain. It also presented a danger of his widely-separated columns of being struck in detail by the more concentrated Union army.

With this first hard news of the Union army’s positions, Lee cancelled the army’s northward march to the Susquehanna River and ordered the Army to concentrate at Cashtown and Gettysburg, east of South Mountain and its northward extensions, in order to discourage a Union foray into his rear. Lieutenant-General James Longstreet (I Corps) and Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill (III Corps) were directed to halt their march towards Harrisburg and they turned towards Cashtown, eighteen miles eastwards on a good road east of South Mountain. Hill set out promptly and Longstreet prepared to move the following day so that they did not clog the single available road.

Having made these plans, Lee sent messages to Lieutenant-General Richard Stoddert Ewell (II Corps), ordering him to change the direction of his march from Harrisburg, which was west of the mountains, to Chambersburg. Major-General Jubal Anderson Early’s detached division of II Corps was to rejoin Ewell’s two other divisions at Chambersburg by marching from York through New Berlin and Heidlersburg, ten miles from Hanover. Ewell was to stay east of the mountains and then to aim for Cashtown, where I Corps and III Corps were concentrating. Ewell was given the alternative of marching to the crossroads town of Gettysburg, eight miles east of Cashtown. Ewell was unaccustomed to this level of discretion and deferred choosing his destination until the morning when he reached Middletown, a junction midway between Cashtown and Gettysburg.

Lee was still unaware of the location of Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s three cavalry brigades. An officer arrived in the afternoon saying that he had last been with Stuart south of Occoquan Creek in Virginia on 27 June 1863. Desperate for cavalry to protect his army’s movements and also to locate the enemy, Lee sent for orders his two cavalry brigades under Brigadier-General William Edmondson Jones and Brigadier-General Beverly Holcombe Robertson to leave their covering positions in the Blue Ridge passes and to join the army in Pennsylvania as soon as possible. Lee also sent for Brigadier-General John Daniel Imboden’s independent brigade of cavalry and partisan raiders. Imboden was at least two days’ ride distant, guarding the approaches to the Cumberland Valley from the west. Until Imboden could arrive to guard the army’s supply train, Longstreet was forced to detach Major-General George Edward Pickett’s division to protect them at Chambersburg. The rest of the army began to converge towards Cashtown. Hill’s III Corps began to arrive at Cashtown during the day. Major-General Henry Heth’s division arrived first and went into camp while the other two divisions of III Corps followed behind from Chambersburg.

McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania. A detachment of Union 1st New York Cavalry skirmished at McConnellsburg, losing one man wounded, and killing two Confederates.

Tennessee. Incidents at Fairfield, Moscow Station, Spring Creek, and Elm River.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Decherd.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Hillsboro.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Lexington.

Tennessee. Skirmish near Tullahoma.

Tennessee. The main body of Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans’ Army of the Cumberland left Manchester and headed for Hillsboro. He aimed to threaten the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad south of Tullahoma. The advance was led by Major-General George Henry Thomas’ XIV Corps, followed by two divisions of Major-General Alexander McDowell McCook’s XX Corps and then, further behind, Major-General Thomas Leonidas Crittenden’s XXI Corps.

Union Colonel John Thomas Wilder’s “Lightning Brigade” led the way and attempted again to cut the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad south of Cowan but they were deterred by a Confederate infantry force that was transported along the line to defend any threatened point. Wilder withdrew through the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains towards Pelham, pausing to wreck a bridge near Sewanee on the branch line to Tracy City. They had failed to capture or destroy the Elk River railroad bridge which was protected by Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s cavalry. Hearing that Forrest was now in pursuit of the railroad-wreckers, Wilder eluded interception and headed for safer ground at Manchester.

Virginia. Incident at Little River Turnpike.

West Virginia. A Confederate expedition to Beverly began by Colonel William Lowther Jackson and 19th Virginia Cavalry.
