Virginia. Expedition from Gainesville ended.

Virginia. Union reconnaissance from Suffolk to South Mills, North Carolina, began.

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

Virginia. Union Major-General Joseph Hooker sent a reconnaissance force from Falmouth towards Culpeper to determine the direction of Confederate movements. Hooker interpreted the enemy’s cavalry presence around Culpeper as an indication of preparations for a raid against his army’s supply lines. In response to this threat, he ordered his cavalry to make a spoiling raid to disperse and destroy the Confederates.

Unknown to the Confederates, over 11,000 Union troops had now massed on the north side of the Rappahannock River. Union Major-General Alfred Pleasonton, commanding the Cavalry Corps of eight brigades, organised a scouting force in two wings under Brigadier-General John Buford and Brigadier-General David McMurtrie Gregg, augmented by two composite infantry brigades. Buford’s wing, accompanied by Pleasonton, consisted of his own 1st Cavalry Division, a Reserve Brigade led by Major Charles J Whiting, and an infantry brigade of 3,000 men under Brigadier-General Adelbert Ames (2/1/XI). Gregg’s wing was the 2nd Cavalry Division, led by Colonel Alfred Napoleon Alexander Duffié, the 3rd Cavalry Division under Gregg, and an infantry brigade under Brigadier-General David Allen Russell (3/1/VI). They were accompanied by six artillery batteries.

Pleasonton’s attack plan called for a two-pronged thrust at the enemy, crossing the Rapidan above and below Rappahannock Station. Buford’s wing would cross the river at Beverly’s Ford, two miles northeast of Brandy Station. At the same time, Gregg’s wing would cross at Kelly’s Ford, six miles downstream to the southeast. Pleasonton anticipated that the Confederate cavalry would be caught in a double envelopment, surprised, outnumbered, and beaten. He was, however, unaware of the precise disposition of the enemy and he incorrectly assumed that his force was substantially larger than the Confederates he faced.

Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart had stationed his force of about 9,500 cavalrymen near Culpeper, around Brandy Station. Stuart’s command consisted of five cavalry brigades, commanded by Brigadier-General Wade Hampton, Brigadier-General William Henry Fitzhugh Lee, Brigadier-General Beverly Holcombe Robertson, Brigadier-General William Edmonson Jones, and Colonel Thomas Taylor Munford (commanding Brigadier-General Fitzhugh Lee’s brigade while Lee was stricken with a bout of rheumatism), plus six batteries of Horse Artillery, commanded by Major Robert F Beckham. They had recently staged a grand review for the benefit of General Robert Edward Lee and were thus concentrated and not dispersed across their usual locations to ease the provision of forage.
