June 4 1863 Thursday

Vicksburg Campaign – Siege of Vicksburg

Gettysburg Campaign

Siege of Port Hudson

Arkansas. Skirmish at Fayetteville.

Georgia. Union expedition from Fort Pulaski to Bluffton, South Carolina.

Illinois. US President Abraham Lincoln revoked Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside’s order regarding the seizure of the Chicago Times newspaper.

Louisiana. Skirmish at the Atchafalaya River.

Louisiana. Skirmish at Lake St Joseph.

Louisiana. USS Lafayette and USS Pittsburg proceeded to the point near Simsport where USS Switzerland had recently been damaged. They shelled the Confederate gunners away from their breastworks. They then burned their camp and the houses which had been occupied as their quarters. The gunboats then returned to their positions at the mouth of the Red River.

Louisiana. Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks conducted correspondence with General-in-Chief Major-General Henry Wager Halleck concerning his siege of Port Hudson. Halleck repeated instructions for Banks to cooperate with Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant by combining their forces for the capture of Vicksburg as that was a higher priority than the capture of Port Hudson. Banks was expected to send his spare troops to help Grant, a fact which Banks resented as he was senior in rank to Grant. Banks had anticipated receiving reinforcement from Grant for his attack on Port Hudson. Eventually, the dispute was settled by Halleck’s concession that Grant should support Banks against Port Hudson as Banks had identified an urgency to protect New Orleans from impending attack.

Mississippi. Expedition to Haines’ Bluff and Mechanicsburg ended. Incidents at Mechanicsburg and Satartia.

South Carolina. Union expedition from Fort Pulaski, Georgia, to Bluffton. USS Commodore McDonough with the transports Island City and Cossack, and the Army gunboat Mayflower transported and supported a landing at Bluffton. The troops disembarked and met strong Confederate resistance. With naval gunfire support, the town was destroyed and the troops re-embarked.

South Carolina. Union Admiral Andrew Hull Foote USN was appointed to command the naval forces stationed at Charleston, South Carolina.

Tennessee. Union reconnaissance to Smithville began.

Tennessee. Union operation at Murfreesboro.

Tennessee. Incidents at Liberty, McMinnville, Stones River Ford, and Marshall Knob.

Tennessee. Skirmish on the Shelbyville Pike near Murfreesboro.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Snow Hill.

Franklin, Tennessee. Union Colonel John P Baird and the 85th Indiana Infantry arrived at Franklin where they were attacked by Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest with a force of cavalry and mounted infantry. During the fighting, Baird was reinforced by Colonel Ferdinand Van Derveer with more cavalry. The Confederates were forced to abandon the area.

Virginia. Skirmishes on the Lawyers’ Road near Fairfax Court House and at Frying Pan. Union troops were ambushed after passing Frying Pan. The Union force regrouped and pursued the Confederates to Aldie, and then returned through Dranesville.

Virginia. Union expedition from Yorktown to Aylett’s and Walkerton began. The USS Commodore Morris, Lieutenant-Commander James H Gillis, USS Commodore Jones, Lieutenant-Commander John G Mitchell, the Army gunboat Smith Briggs, and the transport Winnisimet carrying 400 troops, ascended the Mattapony River to destroy a foundry above Walkerton where Confederate artillery ammunition was being manufactured. The troops landed at Walkerton and marched to the Aylett’s area where the machinery and other facilities and provisions were destroyed. As the force returned downriver the gunboats dropped shelled deserted houses and scoured the banks along the river for batteries and raiders. The Union scouts also falsely reported the presence of Confederate Major-General George Edward Pickett to be camped within ten miles at Newtown.

Virginia. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee moved more of his Army of Northern Virginia from Hamilton’s Crossing and Fredericksburg towards Culpeper, leaving III Corps (Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill) at Fredericksburg. Two divisions of I Corps were already at Culpeper (Major-General George Edward Pickett and Major-General John Bell Hood) and that of Major-General Lafayette McLaws had left on 3 June to join them. Major-General Robert Edward Rodes now set out with his division, the first division form II Corps to depart.

The Confederate army was suffering from hunger and their equipment was poor. This was a factor in Lee’s decision to strike north to capture horses, equipment, and provisions for his men.

Six miles northeast of Culpeper, holding the line of the Rappahannock River, Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s cavalry division provided protection for the army’s advance against surprise by the enemy.

Virginia. Observers in aerial balloons detected increased activity and a possible departure of some of the Confederates from Fredericksburg. Union Major-General Joseph Hooker ordered a reconnaissance to be made at Fredericksburg the following day. He also directed his Cavalry Corps to extend its area of scouting operations.
