Vicksburg Campaign – Siege of Vicksburg

Jones’ and Imboden’s West Virginia Raid

Indian Territory. Incident at Fort Blunt.

Indian Territory. Skirmish near Fort Gibson.

Louisiana. Skirmish near Cheyneyville with Confederate cavalry.

Louisiana. Confederate Major-General Richard Taylor received orders from General Edmund Kirby Smith to postpone his proposed advance against New Orleans. He was instructed to move instead towards Milliken’s Bend on the Mississippi in order to disrupt the flow of supplies along the riverside road to New Carthage and the army of Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant at Vicksburg. Taylor argued that his planned action against New Orleans would be more effective in raising the siege of Vicksburg but was over-ruled. Taylor set out in along the Tensas River to combine with a division of 4,000 Texans under Major-General John George Walker, raising Taylor’s force to nearly 10,000 men.
