Arkansas. Reconnaissance to White River and St Francis River ended.

Arkansas. Skirmish at Fort Smith.

Louisiana. Incident at Camp Moore.

Louisiana. Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks evacuated Alexandria and his three divisions marched along the south bank of the Red River towards the confluence with the Mississippi.

Mississippi. Expedition to Panola ended.

Mississippi. Incidents at Tuscahoma, Cochran’s Cross Roads, Edwards Station, and Coldwater.

Mississippi. Following the Union occupation of Jackson, Confederate General Joseph Eggleston Johnston retreated with most of his 6,000 Confederates seven miles up the Canton Road to Tugaloo. He anticipated the imminent arrival of three further brigades with as many as 12,000 to 13,000 extra reinforcements. Johnston sent new discretionary orders to Lieutenant-General John Clifford Pemberton, who was commanding about 23,000 men at Edward’s Station west of Jackson. Pemberton could either attack the Union forces at Clinton or attempt to cut off their supply lines to the Mississippi at Grand Gulf. The communications between Johnston and Pemberton were slow and difficult. Johnston warned Pemberton that he could not possibly achieve a junction at Dillon as Pemberton had proposed the day before because his own 6,000 men were now north of Jackson to await reinforcements. Johnston reiterated the need to make a junction at Clinton, to which point Johnston would direct his own march. Pemberton had already called off his propsoed march from Edwards Station south-eastwards to Dillon, having been delayed by the need to bridge a flooded creek, when he received Johnston’s new information. Pemberton and his generals believed that Johnston’s former plan to attack Clinton was now too dangerous and they decided instead to go southwards to attack the Union supply trains moving from Grand Gulf to Raymond. This new discretionary order from Johnston was in accord with Pemberton’s own judgment of the situation. Pemberton had only 17,500 mobile troops in three divisions, after leaving garrisons of two divisions at Warrenton, Vicksburg, along the Big Black River and at Haines’ Bluff. Pemberton felt it was impossible to drive through the entire Union army to concentrate with Johnston any nearer to Jackson.

Pemberton had already started after the supply trains and was on the Raymond to Edward’s Station Road with his rear at the crossroads one-third mile south of the crest of Champion’s Hill. When he ordered the countermarch towards Edward’s Station the rear of his column, including his supply train turned around and became the head of his force. Pemberton re-directed his three divisions to march towards Clinton but not along the railroad. They followed a wider route passing north-eastwards through Brownsville to avoid Union troops at Bolton. This route would converge on Clinton from the north-west, and nearer to Johnston’s position.

The Union force at Clinton now comprised the XIII Corps of Major-General John Alexander McClernand and the XVII Corps of Major-General James Birdseye McPherson, who was had set out at first light from Jackson to reinforce McClernand. Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant ordered McClernand to move towards Bolton Station, a point nearer to Vicksburg and the Big Black River. McClernand’s four divisions had four miles to march to reach Bolton whereas McPherson’s three divisions had seventeen miles to go. However, McClernand’s men were dispersed in defensive positions from Raymond to Fourteen Mile Creek and Major-General Francis Preston Blair’s attached division from XV Corps needed to be brought forward from guarding the supply trains.

By late afternoon, one division from XIII Corps (Brigadier-General Alvin Peterson Hovey) and one from XVII Corps (Brigadier-General John Alexander Logan) had reached Bolton. The divisions of Brigadier-General Eugene Asa Carr (XIII), and Brigadier-General Peter Joseph Osterhaus (XIII) were camped three miles further to the south with Brigadier-General Andrew Jackson Smith’s division (XIII) between the. Blair’s division (of XV Corps) was somewhat distant at Raymond. The divisions of Brigadier-General John McArthur (of XVII Corps) and Brigadier-General John Marcellus Crocker (of XVII Corps) were lining the railroad back to Clinton.

Grant arrived at Clinton at nightfall and ordered McClernand to advance to Edwards Station in the morning, supported by McPherson, but not to bring on an engagement without the certainty of success.

Missouri. Incidents at French Point and Centre Creek

Missouri. Skirmish at Big Creek near Pleasant Hill involving Captain William Clarke Quantrill and his Confederate guerrillas.

North Carolina. A band of 35 Confederates seized the mail steamers Arrow and Emily at Currituck Bridge near Elizabeth City and forced the crews to pilot them to Franklin.

Tennessee. Expedition to La Grange ended. Incident at Rover.

Virginia. Union operations against the Petersburg & Norfolk Railroad began.

Virginia. Union expedition from Parkersburg into Calhoun County began

Virginia. Union expedition aboard USS Morse to King and Queen County, Robinson’s Plantation and West Point to destroy Confederate food supplies began.

Virginia. Incident at Carrsville.

Virginia. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee participated in a strategic conference in Richmond with President Jefferson Finis Davis and Secretary of War James Alexander Seddon. Attempts to persuade Lee to send two divisions under Lieutenant-General James Longstreet to Mississippi were rebuffed. Lee argued that such reinforcements would not turn the tide in either Mississippi or Tennessee but suggested that Union forces could be diverted instead by a more ambitious plan. Lee proposed an invasion of Pennsylvania, in order to divert Union attention and to achieve a victory on Northern soil that offered hope of turning the tide of the war against the Union. The plan was agreed in principle and Lee was asked to restate it in more detail the following day to the Cabinet.
