March 9 1863 Monday

Fairfax Court House, VA

Yazoo Pass Expedition

Virginia Southside and North Carolina Operations

Atlantic Ocean. CSS Florida, Lieutenant John Newland Maffitt, captured and burned the Aldebaran bound from New York with a cargo of provisions and clocks.

Bahamas. USS Octorara, Commander Napoleon Collins, seized the British blockade-running schooner Florence Nightingale with a cargo of cotton in the North East Providence Channel of the Bahamas Islands.

Arkansas. Incidents at Chalk Bluff and Madison.

Florida. USS Huntsville, Acting Lieutenant William C Rogers, seized the blockade-running British schooner Surprise off Charlotte Harbour, bound for Havana with a cargo of cotton.

Florida. Skirmish near St Augustine as Union troops attacked the Confederate Camp Peyton, seven miles southwest of the port.

Georgia. Skirmish at Fort McAllister.

Louisiana. Skirmish at Montesano bridge on the Comite River.

Mississippi. Following heavy flooding and the failure of the dams, and after nearly two months of fruitless effort, the canal being constructed at Vicksburg Point (“Grant’s Canal” or “Butler’s Ditch”) was finally abandoned by Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman. This setback, and the abandonment of the Yazoo Pass expedition due to impassable rivers, forced Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant to consider new plans for the advance to capture Vicksburg.

Missouri. Union expedition from Bloomfield to Chalk Bluff, Arkansas via Gum Slough, Hornersville and Kennett began.

Missouri. Skirmishes at Big Creek and Sherwood.

Missouri. The relentless depredations of Confederate guerrillas and partisans caused consternation throughout the state. Governor Hamilton R Gamble supported Union Brigadier-General John McAllister Schofield’s strategy of taking the offensive into Arkansas with his Army of the Frontier. The aim was to turn the tide by cutting off supplies and support reaching Confederate guerrillas in Missouri. By contrast, Major-General Samuel Ryan Curtis favoured a policy of keeping forces within the state to track down the guerrilla bands. The two commanders were at loggerheads and veteran commander Major-General Edwin Vose Sumner was assigned to inspect and bring about cooperation on his way to California. Unfortunately, Sumner died before he arrived and Schofield’s policy ultimately gained the ascendancy. For the time being. Schofield lacked the means to begin his offensive, even though the Confederates facing him were even weaker in numbers and equipment.

South Carolina. USS Bienville, Commander J R Madison Mullany, captured the schooner Lightning south of Port Royal. It then continued to engage the Confederate fort at Port Royal ineffectively for three hours before withdrawing.

Tennessee. Union Commander Alexander Moseley Pennock USN, commanding a section of the Mississippi River Squadron, reported increased Confederate activity along the banks of the Tennessee River. He ordered two gunboats under Lieutenant-Commander Le Roy Fitch, USS Lexington, to steam to Decatur and a third to Waterloo to prevent the enemy from crossing and to protect the important railroad bridges. Low water in the river prevented the gunboats from reaching Decatur but they patrolled the lower Tennessee.

Tennessee. Expedition to Colliersville, Franklin and La Grange began.

Tennessee. Union reconnaissance from Salem to Versailles began.

Tennessee. Incidents at Thompson’s Station, Somerville, Franklin, Covington, and Shelby County.

Virginia. Reconnaissance to Suffolk ended. Incident at Windsor.

Fairfax Court House, Virginia. Confederate Captain John Singleton Mosby led a group of guerrillas to Fairfax County Court House, where there was a Union garrison commanded by Colonel (formerly Brigadier-General) Edward Henry Stoughton. The Confederates quietly made their way into the courthouse where Stoughton was sleeping. Mosby captured him in bed and also captured 32 other Union soldiers, 58 horses, and their arms and equipment. Mosby’s men evaded several Union outposts and camps on their escape from Fairfax County Court House. The audacity of Mosby’s raids and Stoughton’s humiliation provoked outrage in the Federal capital. Stoughton resigned his commission on 31 May 1863 partly because of this escapade.
