Georgia. Confederate Nathan Bedford Forrest left Rome and headed north to oppose a Union raiding force reported to be heading from Tuscumbia to Jasper in the direction of Montgomery, Alabama.

Idaho Territory. Expedition to Bear River and Soda Springs began.

Kansas. Union reconnaissance from Fort Scott, to Sherwood, Missouri, began.

Louisiana. Incident at Black River.

Louisiana. The three Union gunboats of Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks’ expedition to the Red River, which had attacked Fort De Russy the previous day, met Union Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter’s gunboat flotilla arriving from fifty miles downriver. Porter had completed his protection of the landings at Grand Gulf three days earlier and ascended the Red River with the USS Benton, USS Lafayette, USS Pittsburg, USS Sterling Price, the ram Switzerland, and the tug Ivy. USS Estrella and USS Arina arrived at Fort De Russy during the evening, having been sent as reinforcements by Rear Admiral David Glasgow Farragut. During the afternoon the combined fleet approached Fort De Russy and found it was abandoned.

Louisiana. Confederate Major-General Richard Taylor evacuated Alexandria ahead of the approach of Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks from Opelousas.

Louisiana. Union Colonel Benjamin Henry Grierson travelled downriver from Baton Rouge to New Orleans where he received the plaudits of soldiers and civilians alike for his audacious raid through Mississippi.

Mississippi. Skirmish at King’s Creek near Tupelo with the defeat of Confederate forces under Brigadier-General Daniel Ruggles by Union Colonel Corwyn’s cavalry.

Mississippi. Incidents at Mitchell’s Creek and Blackland.

Mississippi. Skirmish at Big Sandy Creek.

Mississippi. Union Major-General Ulysses Simpson Grant set up his headquarters at Hankinson’s Ferry on the Big Black River.

Missouri. Union reconnaissance from Fort Scott, Kansas, to Sherwood began.

Missouri. Skirmish near Sherwood on Centre Creek with a Union attack on a Confederate camp.

North Carolina. Skirmish at Peletier’s Mill.

Ohio. The leading Peace Democrat, or Copperhead, Ohio Congressman Clement Laird Vallandigham, was arrested at his home for speaking against the war in public. He was taken to the headquarters of Union Major-General Ambrose Everett Burnside in Cincinnati.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Obion Plank Road Crossing.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Rover with Union cavalry.

Utah Territory. Expedition from Camp Douglass to Soda Springs on the Bear River began. The purpose was to establish a new post in that region for the protection of overland emigrants to Oregon, California, and the Bannock City Mines, in addition to searching for the Sagwich Indians.

Virginia. Incident at Aylett’s.

Virginia. Skirmish at Thompson’s Cross Roads with Union cavalry.

Harrisville, Virginia. Confederate Colonel Asher Hartman led his Confederate raiders on from West Union to Harrisville and attacked the Union Home Guards protecting the town. Hartman captured and paroled 75 men. A small detachment of the Confederates burned the wooden supports of the railroad tunnels and made then collapse, rendering the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad temporarily impassable.

Virginia. Confederate Major-General Samuel Gibb French was left to hold the Blackwater River line in southern Virginia while the two divisions of Lieutenant-General James Longstreet headed for Petersburg.

Virginia. Union Major-General John Adams Dix requested naval assistance and support for an expedition on the York River: He asked for two gunboats to cover the landing of the troops. Rear Admiral Samuel Phillips Lee assigned USS Commodore Morris, USS Morse, and USS Mystic and the expedition set out of 7t May.

Virginia. Union Major-General John Sedgwick withdrew his VI Corps across the Rappahannock River at Banks’ Ford and Scott’s Dam. Union Brigadier-General John Gibbon’s division of II Corps crossed to the eastern bank of the Rappahannock at Fredericksburg and dismantled the pontoon bridges. With Sedgwick’s threat removed, Confederate General Robert Edward Lee once again turned his attention to Major-General Joseph Hooker’s Army of the Potomac at US Ford, seeking to prevent his escape. Lee put the divisions of Major-General Lafayette McLaws and Major-General Richard Heron on the road back towards Chancellorsville. Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart, temporarily commanding the three divisions of II Corps facing Hooker, reported that Hooker was still in great force but remained passive behind his powerful defences.

In fact, Hooker was implementing his retreat to his last line of defences just one mile from US Ford. Union Major-General George Gordon Meade’s V Corps occupied this rearguard position around midday while the rest of the army waited until midnight to disengage from the main lines and to file towards the northern bank of the Rappahannock in a cold, heavy rainstorm. By midnight the bridges and fords were in danger of being flooded by a six-foot rise in the water level. The withdrawal was halted when only a few regiments had crossed, but then at 2 am Hooker ordered the withdrawal to resume despite the risks. One bridge was dismantled to strengthen the other and the retreat resumed.

Virginia. Incident at Janelew.
