Battle of Vaught’s Mill, TN (CWSAC Limited Battle Union Victory)

Rolling Fork, MS

Yazoo Pass Expedition

Steele Bayou Expedition

Virginia Southside and North Carolina Operations

Bahamas. USS Tioga, Commander Albert Gallatin Clary,  captured the British blockade running steamer Granite City at sea off Eleuthera Island and the British schooner Brothers off Abaco. Both vessels were carrying assorted cargoes including medicines and liquor.

Florida. USS Ethan Allen, Acting Master Pennell, seized the British blockade running British schooner Gypsy off St Joseph’s Bay with a cargo of merchants’ tools.

Florida. Skirmish at St Andrews Bay as Confederates killed or captured most of the members of a Union landing party.

Mississippi. Rear Admiral David Glasgow Farragut in USS Hartford, with USS Albatross in company, had anchored just below Warrenton after running past the batteries at Grand Gulf. He opened communications with Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant, and with Brigadier-General Alfred Washington Ellet of the Mississippi Marine Brigade and the ram fleet. Farragut requested coal for his two ships so that they could maintain the blockade of Confederate traffic on the Red River below Vicksburg. He also asked for reinforcements from above Vicksburg to strengthen his force. Grant floated a coal barge down the river to Farragut, who steamed above Warrenton to gather the vital cargo.

Farragut also advised Grant that the Confederates were building a strong casemated work’ at Warrenton. His occasional shelling did not greatly disrupt the construction efforts and he offered to land a force from his two gunboats to destroy the batteries if troops could be provided. Grant replied agreed to send troops to destroy the batteries at Warrenton under Farragut’s command. Union Captain Henry Walke expressed the view that Farragut’s blockade of the Red River could be better achieved with the aid of one of the Ellet rams, which could pass down from above Vicksburg. The ram would also be more suitable for landing the troops at Warrenton than either of Farragut’s seagoing ships, USS Hartford or USS Albatross. Two of Ellet’s ships would make the run past Vicksburg on 25 March.

Rolling Fork, Mississippi. Union Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter’s expedition pressed on through Steele Bayou towards Rolling Fork Bayou. The flagship steamed ahead into an area of willow canes and reeds that fouled the boats’ paddle-wheels. Within thirty yards they were entangled so completely that his leading ship was immobilised. The fleet was only sixty yards from Rolling Fork bayou and only ten miles from the broad clear water of the Sunflower River. The banks were steep, preventing the gunboats from training them effectively and the fleet became a sitting target. To deter Confederate cavalry and infantry Porter sent ashore four boat howitzers and 300 men from the USS Carondelet under Lieutenant John M Murphy to occupy and fortify an Indian mound. Meanwhile, crewmen went overboard to cut the willows that held the ship in a vice. Two Confederate Whitworth guns began to fire from long range at the Indian Mound and two batteries of six guns were deployed by the Confederates in the opposite direction. The gunners on the Mound were outranged considerably and abandoned their exposed outpost. Confederate strength continued to grow and they began to place obstructions and felled trees in the rear as well as ahead of the fleet.

A contraband slave passed through the swamps to reach Union Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman’s troops near Black Bayou with a desperate message requesting rescue. The contraband arrived during the night and before daylight infantry assistance was on its way to help repel the Confederates that were enclosing Porter’s ships. Although Sherman’s men reached the gunboats Porter decided that their numbers were insufficient to ensure success. The soldiers had reached the gunboats without provisions or field artillery.

Porter was compelled to break off the attempt to reach the Yazoo in order to avoid complete entrapment. Unable to turn around in the narrow waters, the gunboats unshipped their rudders and drifted backwards. Coming to a bend in the river where the Confederates had cut trees to block the passage completely, the gunboats and Union troops fought their way. The Union force had spent six days and nights constantly at work or sleeping at the guns. The expedition lost its coal barge and the provisions ship also had to be abandoned. Although the expedition did not achieve its primary goal, it destroyed bridges and cut off temporarily the local transport of provisions to Vicksburg. A vast quantity of corn was destroyed and many horses, mules, and cattle were taken. An estimated 20,000 bales of cotton were destroyed and a quantity captured.

North Carolina. USS Victoria, Acting Lieutenant Hooker, and US schooner William Bacon captured the British blockade running steamer Nicolai I off Cape Fear. The steamer was carrying a cargo of dry goods, arms, and ammunition, and had been turned back two days earlier from its attempt to run into Charleston.

Tennessee. Expedition to Perryville ended.

Vaught’s Mill, Tennessee, also known as Milton. Union Colonel Albert S Hall (2nd Brigade, 5th Division, XIV Corps, plus cavalry and artillery detachments) encountered Confederate Brigadier-General John Hunt Morgan’s cavalry division of about 3,500 men fifteen miles northeast of Murfreesboro. Morgan’s men pursued and caught up with Hall during the morning at Vaught’s Mill. Morgan’s dismounted cavalrymen struck at both Union flanks and encircled Hall’s hilltop position. Hall conducted a perimeter defence and withstood all Confederate attacks, which lasted till after 2 pm. Morgan continued to bombard the Union position. At 4.30 pm he broke off the engagement after learning that Union reinforcements were en route from Murfreesboro. Union casualties were reported as 62 and Confederate as 373.
