May 6 1863 Wednesday

Vicksburg Campaign

Chancellorsville Campaign

Jones’ and Imboden’s West Virginia Raid

Stoneman’s Virginia Raid

First Bayou Teche Expedition

Brazil. CSS Florida, Lieutenant John Newland Maffitt, captured the brig Clarence off the coast of Brazil. The Clarence was converted into a Confederate cruiser, or commerce raider, under Lieutenant Charles Read CSN with a crew of twenty men. Read’s objective was Hampton Roads where he intended to attack a Union gunboat or steamer, Failing that objective, he would raid Union shipping off Baltimore.

Alabama. Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest reached Gadsden and discovered that reports of Union troops heading to Jasper were groundless. The Union command of Brigadier-General Grenville Mellen Dodge had already turned back to Corinth. Forrest headed north to reunite with his detached regiment at Brown’s Ferry in order to rejoin the Army of the Tennessee around Tullahoma.

Alabama. USS R R Cuyler, Lieutenant-Commander James E Jouett, captured the steamer Eugenie bound from Havana to Mobile.

Arkansas. Union reconnaissance between the White River and St Francis River began.

Indian Territory. Confederate reconnaissance from the Creek Agency to Jasper County, Missouri, began.

Kentucky. Incident at Waitsboro.

Alexandria, Louisiana. During the afternoon, Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks and his three divisions occupied Alexandria after a two-week march from Opelousas. He arrived a few hours behind the gunboats of Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter who had ascended the Red River from Fort De Russy, passing a heavy obstruction in the river before proceeding onwards to Alexandria. The Confederate garrison of Alexandria withdrew towards Shreveport to avoid the advancing Union forces. Banks spent about a week at Alexandria, gathering 2,000 wagons of supplies to be sent towards New Orleans.Banks sent scouting expeditions towards Natchitoches and the surrounding areas but he was obliged to turn his attention back to the Mississippi and the reduction of the Confederate stronghold at Port Hudson.

Louisiana. Union Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman’s XV Corps arrived at Hard Times on his march from Milliken’s Bend. He released the third division of Major-General James Birdseye McPherson’s XVII Corps from its guard duty along the riverside and they began crossing the Mississippi to Grand Gulf on the eastern shore.

Mississippi. Incident at Bruinsburg Landing.

Missouri. Reconnaissance to Patterson began.

Missouri. Confederate reconnaissance from the Creek Agency in the Indian Territory to Jasper County began.

Tennessee. Reconnaissance to La Grange ended.

Virginia. Skirmish at Warrenton.

Virginia. Incidents at Strasburg and Birch Island Bridges.

Virginia. USS Dragon, Acting Master G F Hill, seized the schooner Samuel First attempting to run the blockade above Potomac Creek.

Virginia. By mid-morning, Union Major-General Joseph Hooker and his Army of the Potomac had completed their withdrawal across the Rappahannock River. This concluded the ignominious campaign of Chancellorsville. Hooker reached his former headquarters at Falmouth during the evening.

Virginia. Confederate General Robert Edward Lee accompanied the advance guard as it pushed through the woods to Banks’ Ford, only to find that the Union army had escaped. Leaving a force to observe the fords, to bury the dead, recover the wounded and to gather masses of abandoned military equipment, Lee put the Army of Northern Virginia back on the road to reoccupy its positions on Marye’s Heights at Fredericksburg. Despite receiving accolades for the brilliance of the Chancellorsville campaign, Lee had failed to deliver a mortal blow and the Union army survived to launch another campaign.

Casualties for the entire Chancellorsville campaign were reported approximately as about 14,000 Union and 10,000 Confederates. More detailed reports stated Union losses as 1,575 killed, 9,594 wounded or 17,218 killed, wounding and missing (alternatively, 17,287); and Confederates as 12,821 killed, wounded and missing.

Virginia. Confederate Lieutenant-General James Longstreet’s two divisions left Petersburg and headed for Richmond. Longstreet rode on ahead and organised trains in Richmond to transport the troops to join the fighting at Fredericksburg.

Virginia. Union cavalry under Colonel Benjamin Franklin Davis and Colonel Percy Wyndham conducted destructive raids west and northwest of Richmond. Wyndham destroyed part of the James Canal at Columbia while Davis destroyed the Virginia Central Railroad between the South Anna River and Richmond. Colonel Hugh Judson Kilpatrick’s cavalry destroyed the Fredericksburg Railroad to within two miles of Richmond at Hungary Station before crossing the Chickahominy and eventually ending his ride at Gloucester on the York River, opposite Yorktown.

Virginia. At around 3 pm, a detachment of the Union 1st New York Cavalry, commanded by Lieutenant Jesse F Wyckoff, and the 67th Pennsylvania Infantry marched to Blakely’s Grove between Bloomfield and Upperville. They encountered Confederate Major John Singleton Mosby and his raiders. The infantry Union deployed on both sides of the road to the rear of the cavalry. The cavalry aimed to chase the raiders into the ambush site, where the infantry would force them to surrender. Wyckoff attacked, wounding one trooper and turned to head back to the ambush site. The Confederates followed as planned. The infantry mistook the Union riders riding as Confederates and fired on their own cavalry, killing two men and wounding two more. Mosby ordered his men to stop and the Union withdrew from their positions.

Virginia. Skirmish at West Union involving Confederate Brigadier-General William Edmondson Jones.
