May 28 1863 Thursday

Start of Siege of Port Hudson, LA

Siege of Vicksburg

Siege of Port Hudson

Alabama. Incident at Florence.

Indian Territory. Skirmish near Fort Gibson.

Kentucky. Union forces in Kentucky were collected under the command of Major-General George Lucas Hartsuff to form the new XXIII Corps (Ohio). It did not participate in major field operations until it joined IX Corps for the invasion of eastern Tennessee.

Siege of Port Hudson, Louisiana. Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks’ Army of the Gulf ended all attempts to take the impregnable Confederate defences at Port Hudson by assault and settled into a siege. A truce was agreed at 2 pm to collect the dead and wounded of the assaults made on the previous day. Banks assembled some of his troops and thanked them for their previous efforts and sacrifices, and asked for volunteers for a special attack group to be trained intensively to breach the Confederate trench line. His speech generated little enthusiasm, but a unit of 1,036 men was formed and removed to a training camp in the rear to prepare for the attack. They assembled siege ladders and equipment and were organised into two battalions, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel John B Van Petten and Lieutenant-Colonel A S Bickmore. Colonel Henry Warner Birge of the 13th Connecticut Infantry volunteered to lead the special assault regiment but, in the end, no assault was required.

Regular siege operations were resumed under the command of a new chief engineer, Captain John C Palfrey. He concentrated the efforts of the siege on three areas of the fortifications, Fort Desperate, the Priest Cap (Confederate Batteries 14 and 15), and the Citadel, the southernmost bastion of the fortifications, nicknamed by Union forces as “the Devil’s Elbow”. The siege advanced by sapping, while sharpshooters, described at the time as ‘’trench cavaliers’’, protected the workers from behind raised mounds of earth, reinforced with timber, which allowed riflemen to overlook the enemy trenches and fire down into them. The citadel was to be reduced by a powerful siege battery constructed on a hill just to the south, Union battery Number 24. Union batteries were also constructed on the west bank of the Mississippi opposite Port Hudson, surrounding it completely with Union artillery batteries. Union forces also made raids on opposing trenches and batteries, to enhance their trench lines and disable enemy batteries. Some of the 6th Michigan Infantry opposite the Citadel were armed with breech-loading Merrill carbine, to gain an edge in trench raids.

Massachusetts. The 54th Massachusetts (Colored) Infantry, the first officially sanctioned Union regiment composed of black soldiers, embarked at Boston and sailed for Hilton Head, Louisiana, under the command of Union Colonel Robert Gould Shaw.

Mississippi. Skirmish near Austin.

Mississippi. Union reconnaissance reached Hernando.

Missouri. Incident at Bushy Creek.

Tennessee. Reconnaissance to the Manchester Pike ended Expedition to Memphis.

Texas. USS Brooklyn, Commodore Henry Haywood Bell, captured the sloop Kate at Point Isabel with a cargo of cotton.

Virginia. Operation against Petersburg & Norfolk Railroad ended.

Virginia. Clendenin’s 8th Illinois Cavalry Raid to Fredericksburg ended.

Virginia. Reconnaissance to Fairfax Court House, Leesburg and Snicker’s Ferry began.
